Four-laning of Hwy. 67
progressing to Hoxie/WR

Arkansas and Missouri officials met April 16 in Corning to hear an update on progress for four-laning U.S. Hwy. 67 north of the Swifton area. Scott Bennett, new director of the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department, spoke at the meeting.

Walnut Ridge Mayor Don House, member of the Arkansas Good Roads Council, and Clay Sloan, representing the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, attended the meeting.

House said that Bennett reported that on May 2 a contract will be let for a $15 to $20 million paving project. The paving will begin at Hwy. 226, east of Swifton, where the four lanes of Hwy. 67 presently end. The paving will extend north to Hwy. 230, which is east of Alicia.

The final paving project will extend the new four-lane Hwy. 67 north to the Hoxie and Walnut Ridge. This contract will be let in November or earlier if weather conditions remain favorable and if contractors are ahead of schedule. This span of paving will take up to 18 months to complete.

Last month, the Highway Commission authorized a study to look at extending the four-lane divided Hwy. 67 from Walnut Ridge up to the Missouri state line. The highway would be built so that it could later be upgraded to interstate specifications.
