Sidewalk Construction on N. Porter Road May Delay Traffic
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville Transportation Division will begin construction of a new sidewalk west side of N. Porter Road between W. Houston and W. Sycamore Streets. Work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, October 18 and expected to take four weeks to complete. Work hours will be 7a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please note that weather may extend the project timeline.
The construction work will occasionally require restricting traffic on N. Porter Rd to one lane. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic. Motorists should expect traffic delays and may want to use alternate routes. Please use extreme caution when in the work area and watch for personnel and equipment.
The project consists of a new 5-foot wide and 300-foot long sidewalk, curb and gutter, and storm drainage improvements. The sidewalk will improve pedestrian safety and connection to Razorback Transit’s Route 33 Orange bus stop. To learn more about the City’s sidewalk projects, please visit this webpage
