Beltway Feasibility Study Proceeds
By THE MORNING NEWS
SPRINGDALE - Northwest Arkansas moved a step closer to realizing a western bypass today that would allow traffic to go from southern Washington County to northern Benton County without taking Interstate 540.
A feasibility study for the proposed western beltway received needed approval Thursday despite a request for delay from Fayetteville representatives.
The $755,912 feasibility study is of a proposed highway from the unbuilt Bella Vista bypass in the north through western Benton and Washington counties to join I-540 south of Fayetteville.
