WR gets $250,000 for roads
Walnut Ridge has been approved for $250,000 in State Aid City Street funds.
The grant will fund a project to overlay East Fulbright Avenue, Miller Drive, East Georgia Street, Northeast Front Street, Northeast Second Street, and West Poplar Street.
City Clerk Sharon Henson and street department supervisors Bryson Long and Shannon Fisher worked together to write the grant. The city was approved for the maximum amount allowed by the State Aid Street Committee.
The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department will oversee the construction contract. Work is expected to begin in 2018, but a definite date has not been set.
