JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Jonesboro City Council will soon consider a contract with an engineering firm to make improvements to the Highland Drive and Southwest Drive intersection.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department intended to make improvements to the intersection in 2019.

With four new commercial properties being constructed there currently, Mayor Perrin asked that the project be moved up.

The Public Works Committee of the city council will consider that contract at the next meeting in June.
