Jonesboro MPO Hears Roadway Proposal from State

FEBRUARY 20, 2007 - Posted at 4:31 p.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Improving traffic flow in Jonesboro is the goal of a proposed plan the city's Metropolitan Planning Organization is currently studying.

The MPO met today to hear a report from the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department to come up with a better link between U.S. 63 and U.S. 49. 

The study is focusing on finding the best east-to-west route to bypass traffic from East Highland Drive to Highway 49-South.  The plan calls for building a new road linking Highways 63 and 18, or to improve existing roads between the highways.

Commerce Drive and Nestle Road are being considered for the link, but Nestle may be too out-of-the way.
