Mt. Nord Street Closed Five Weeks for Improvements
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The City of Fayetteville Transportation Division is replacing curb, gutter, and asphalt on Mt. Nord Street. The project requires closing the roadway Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work will take approximately five weeks to complete from August 12 through September 13. Residents will be allowed access as needed. Rain could delay or extend the estimated work time.
Drivers in the area should look for detour signs. Crews will work to minimize traffic delays; however, please allow extra travel time.
Oil will be sprayed on the roadway prior to the placement of asphalt overlays. If necessary, you may drive on the oil before the asphalt is placed. Please drive slowly and with care. Driving fast will throw oil on your vehicle and endanger the crew. If oil is thrown on your vehicle, it can be removed with WD-40 spray and paper towels.
The Transportation Division follows a maintenance program for existing asphalts streets within city limits, resulting in fewer complete street rebuilds and lower costs overall. Additionally, the City recycles the asphalt – old layers that have been removed are milled, sold to asphalt plants, and/or reused for new paving projects. The 2019 repaving project list can be viewed on this webpage.
On the behalf of the City of Fayetteville, we would like to express our appreciation for your cooperation and understanding as we perform our work in this area. For additional information on the project, please contact the City of Fayetteville Transportation Division office at 479-575-8228. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
