LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Department of Transportation is proposing spending $3.6 billion on 31 capital and congestion relief projects, including nearly $500 million over 20 years to widen sections of Interstate 40.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the department wants to spend another $350 million on improving I-30 and I-40 in downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock over the same period.
Members of the Arkansas Highway Commission got a first look at a draft map of the potential projects at their regular meeting Wednesday in Little Rock. But officials say nothing is set in stone.
