Construction begins at intersections of Shiloh-Steele, Shiloh-Fulbright Expressway
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville will begin construction today at two intersections on N. Shiloh Drive – at the on/offramp for the Fulbright Expressway and where Shiloh meets Steele Boulevard.
Changes being made are aimed at alleviating westbound traffic from shopping areas east of Shiloh and Steele as well as eastbound traffic from N. Gregg Avenue, both of which cause backups between the intersections during peak times.
Lane shifts, closures and delays will be needed along this high traffic area for the safety of the public and construction workers. Drivers are asked to be observant and use extra care when driving in this area.
This project includes minor realignment of the Shiloh and Steele intersection to create a standard T-intersection. It also includes the addition of a lane for eastbound traffic on Shiloh turning onto the Fulbright Expressway. Traffic signals will be installed at both intersections.
Work on this project is anticipated to be completed by September 2022. The project is funded by the Streets Improvement Bond approved by Fayetteville residents in 2019.
