The Rupple Road Improvement Project is a significant piece of infrastructure on the west side of Fayetteville's Arterial Loop, a plan to create an integrated network of east/west and north/south roadways around the perimeter of the City, connected with miles of trails and sidewalks. This connecting piece of N. Rupple Road will provide a much needed arterial roadway from W. Mount Comfort Road to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. When completed, the Rupple Road Improvement Project will improve traffic flow, serving as an alternate to the north/south route on I-49, and will complete the connectivity with the emerging trail system as well.
Two of the three 2006 Transportation Bond Rupple Road segments are currently COMPLETE (MLK Jr. Blvd. to Persimmon St. and Persimmon St. to Congressional St.). Construction is continuing on the third segment (Starry Night View to Mt. Comfort Road) with an August 2019 completion date. All segments are open to vehicle traffic.
