2016-2020 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program Proposed Amendment Available for Public Comment

A proposed amendment to the Arkansas Department of Transportation’s (ArDOT) Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for Federal Fiscal Years 2016-2020 is now available for public comment.

This proposed STIP amendment would be removing one project and adding another project to the STIP. The current project that is being removed would build the western portion of the Monticello Bypass. The project being added will build the first two lanes of an ultimate four-lane facility for future Interstate 69 between U.S. Highway 278 at the east end of the Monticello Bypass to U.S. Highway 65 in McGehee. This change in priorities is at the request of local entities in Drew, Chicot, Ashley and Desha Counties. Maps are attached of each project.

The public is invited to review and comment on the contents of this proposed STIP amendment by Monday, March 12, 2018. The amendment may be reviewed at the ArDOT Central Office, the State Clearinghouse, or the Southeast Arkansas Economic Development District Office.
