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.
