North Street Corridor
What is this Project?
This project will bring much needed sidewalks and street improvements to one of Fayetteville's most important east-west corridors. Improvements to this corridor are varied, depending on the segment but include sidewalks, shared-use paved trails, trees, lighting and intersection improvements.
- Garland Ave to Gregg Ave: Pedestrian improvements, to connect retail and restaurant areas on Garland Avenue to residential areas and the Razorback Greenway, and pedestrian safety improvements at the Garland/North intersection.
- College Ave Intersection: Left turn lane for west bound traffic east of College Ave, and general intersection alignment and signalization upgrades to reduce congestion.
- College Ave to Mission Blvd: Pedestrian improvements; intersection improvements at Hillcrest.
Why is It Important?
This corridor is an important east-west route for commuter traffic, that runs through existing neighborhoods; a mix of congestion relief and capacity improvements, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities will address issues for all users.
What is the Current Status?
The design concepts have been reviewed by the Transportation Committee and the sections of the corridor were prioritized for design. On 6/21/22, the City Council approved a contract amendment with McClelland to provide full designs for the intersection of College and North, and from the Garland/North intersection to the Razorback Greenway.
McClelland is finalizing the construction plans for the intersection of North and College. This project is expected to bid by the end of 2023.
When Will it be Completed?
The first project of this corridor (North and College Intersection) is expected to start construction by March of 2024 and be completed by September of 2024.
How is it Funded?
Funding for the project comes from the Bond issue that voters approved in April 2019.
