Morningside Drive

What is this project?

It is a project to install 610 feet of new concrete sidewalk on the west side of Morningside Drive from Huntsville Road to Fairlane Street.

Why is it important?

This new segment will provide a connection to the existing sidewalks on Morningside Drive and Huntsville Road, creating a complete pedestrian pathway from Huntsville Road to 15th Street.

What is the current status?

This project is complete.

How is this project being funded?

Funding for this project comes from the Street Fund. The Street Fund is financed through two sources:
1) Turn-back revenues from the State of Arkansas. The State collects motor fuel taxes, which are returned to the City on a per-capita basis.
2) Turn-back monies received from the County Road Millage Tax. The City receives 80% of the road millage levied by the Quorum Court on real and personal property located within the city.
