Starting on Friday, June 5, southbound traffic on Hwy 265, between Ivey Lane and Zion Road, will be moved to the outside, southbound lane. The northbound traffic will remain in its current location in the outside, northbound lane.
This traffic pattern change is necessary to perform work required to complete the widening of Hwy. 265.
Adjustment of the dates of the traffic changes may become necessary due to weather or other unforeseen conditions.
In April 2013, the Arkansas Highway Commission awarded a contract, in the amount of $9,498,700.58 to DECCO Contractors-Paving, Inc. of Rogers, AR for the project. The project will widen the existing highway from three lanes to a grass median divided highway with two lanes and a bike lane in each direction from Joyce Blvd. in Fayetteville to Ivey Lane in Springdale.
Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ArkansasHighways.com.
