Highway Department Gearing Up for Projects in Jonesboro and Paragould

APRIL 7, 2004 - Posted at 1:44 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department (AHTD) will be conducting a motorist survey for the Paragould Bypass Study at the intersection of Highways 412 and 49 in Paragould.  The survey will help determine traffic patterns on the two highways in and around Paragould and will update and verify the findings of a 1997 AHTD study that also examined the feasibility of a bypass around Paragould.

The study will be conducted by a traffic engineering firm on a single day next week.

Motorists will receive a postage-paid, pre-addressed postcard as they pass through the intersection of Highways 412 and 49.  Postcards will be distributed only to motorists already stopped at the traffic signal, therefore traffic delays at the intersection are expected to be minor.  Arkansas Highway Police officers will be present to ensure traffic safety during the survey periods.

Personal information, such as name and addresses, will not be included.  Motorists will be asked to complete and return the cards within 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the AHTD will hold a public involvement session in Jonesboro to discuss plans for a new interchange on Highway 63 on April 20, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the West Elementary School Cafeteria (1110 W. Washington, Jonesboro).  Plans call for constructing a new interchange on U.S. 63 at Washington Avenue.
