LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (News Release) – A proposed amendment to the Arkansas Department of Transportation’s (ARDOT) Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for Federal Fiscal Years 2019-2022 is now available for public comment.

The purpose of this proposed STIP amendment is to move construction funding from an Interstate 49 interchange improvement project at Highways 62/180 in Northwest Arkansas to four Interstate rehabilitation projects on Interstate 40 and Interstate 55. The interchange improvement project will not be ready for construction within the timeframe of this STIP; therefore, this funding will be used to accelerate the Interstate rehabilitation projects that will be ready for construction ahead of schedule. Project development will not be interrupted on the interchange improvement project. Please see attached map.
