Section of Deane St. to close for Midtown Corridor construction
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — As part of construction for the Midtown Corridor project, the section of W. Deane St. from N. Stephen Carr Memorial Blvd. to N. Sang Ave. will be closed to through-traffic starting Monday, Nov. 6, to widen the road and install storm drains.
During the construction, which is anticipated to last a month, detour signs will redirect traffic via N. Porter Rd., W. Lawson St. and N. Lewis Ave.
The Midtown Corridor project includes work on Porter, Deane, W. Sycamore St. and Poplar St. – an important east-west connection for vehicle and bus traffic. In addition to the new 1.75-mile Midtown Trail, the project includes new curbs, storm drainage, lighting, street trees and sidewalks with greenspace.
The project is partially funded by the Streets Improvement Bond approved by Fayetteville residents in 2019. For more information on the Midtown Corridor project, including design plans, go to: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/3877/Midtown-Corridor-Project.
