Highway Commission Meetings Scheduled in Region 8

January 16, 2004 - Posted at 1:33 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas State Highway Commission has scheduled a series of public involvement sessions across the state, including two in Region 8, to discuss the results of its 2003 Arkansas State Highway Needs Study, according to Commission Chairman Buddy Benafield.  The purspose of the meetings is to present the study results and solicit public involvement into the highway planning process.

"The study addresses the costs associated with the development of Arkansas' highway transportation needs over the next ten years, as well as the expected funding over that time period," said Benafield.  "The bottom line is that we have identified $16 billion in needs with anticipated funding of only $4 billion."

Each meeting will consist of a brief presentation on the current condition and future needs on the state highway system, followed by comments from the audience.   Written comments will also be accepted.

Two sessions are scheduled in Region 8, including a January 27 forum in Jonesboro at the Holiday Inn (Craighead Room) and on February 19 in Batesville at UACCB (Independence Hall).
