Hwy. 67 meeting to attract
Two members of congress, as well as highway officials and other elected officials, will be meeting in Walnut Ridge Thursday in an effort to promote the progression of four-lane construction on U.S. Hwy 67 through Northeast Arkansas to Missiouri.
Arkansas and Missouri officials
Members of the Highway 67 Coalition from Arkansas and Missouri will be meeting at Williams Baptist College from 10:30 to noon. The meeting will be held in the Moody Room of the Mabee-Gwinup Cafeteria.
Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson of Missouri and Congressman Marion Berry of Arkansas are both planning to attend the meeting. "For this to work, it will be necessary to have the support of both of these members of Congress," said Don House of Walnut Ridge, a member of the Arkansas Good Roads Transportation Counsel, who helped organize the meeting.
Others expected to attend are Dan Flowers, director of the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, and John Edward Regenold, state highway commissioner from Armorel. Several mayors and legislators along the Hwy. 67 route are also planning to attend.
Representatives from the offices of Senator Pryor, Senator Lincoln and Gov. Mike Beebe's office have also been invited to attend.
The meeting is being hosted by the Highway 67 Coalition, Williams Baptist College and the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.
