Archibald Yell Blvd. Safety Improvements

archibald_yell_blvd

What is this project?

The goal of this project is to provide safe pathways for pedestrians to cross Archibald Yell (Wards 1 & 2).  Concepts have been developed as part of the Fayetteville Mobility Study, and as part of the Highway 71B Corridor Study, that include intersection improvements/signalization at College and Archibald Yell, and at South Street and Archibald Yell.

Why is It Important?

Archibald Yell Boulevard severs the historical downtown grid of streets south and east of the downtown square, and the 4-lane high speed route is a barrier to pedestrians who want to move from neighborhoods to the south and east to destinations around on and around the square and entertainment district.  This project would reduce or eliminate these pedestrian barriers.

What is the Current Status?

Pending

When Will it be Completed?

To Be Determined

How is it Funded?

Funding for the project comes from the Bond issue that voters approved in April 2019.
