Highway Department Schedules Public Forum to Discuss Proposed Paragould Bypass

NOVEMBER 18, 2004 - Posted at 4:25 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department has scheduled an open house public meeting for the proposed Paragould Bypass project on December 2, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Paragould Senior High School Cafeteria.

A study was initiated in early 2004 by the State Highway & Transportation Department to update and verify a 1997 Paragould bypass study.  A recommended alternative for a bypass of Paragould, as well as the results of a study of traffic patterns in Paragould will be presented at the meeting.

The forum is to allow those in attendance an opportunity to comment on the recommended alternative and the need for a bypass.  Representatives with the highway department and the consultant preparing the study will be on hand to answer questions and receive comments.
