Arkansas DOT Set to Receive an Additional $91M in Federal Funding for Six Projects

LITTLE ROCK, AR — The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) is set to receive an additional $91 million in Congressionally Directed Spending and Community Project Funding for six projects.

Members of Arkansas’ Congressional Delegation secured the additional funding in the latest Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development appropriation for the Federal Fiscal Year 2024.

This funding is stipulated for the following projects:

  • $67 million for Interstate 49 between Barling and Alma
  • $6 million for the Future Interstate 57 from Walnut Ridge to the Missouri State Line
  • $5 million for the Highway 10 Greenwood Bypass
  • $5 million for Highway 82 Corridor improvements in Ashley, Chicot, Columbia, and Union Counties
  • $5 million for Highway 412 Corridor improvements of the portion that interfaces with Interstate 49
  • $3 million for Highway 412 Corridor improvements in northern Arkansas

“Our Congressional Delegation works hard for the citizens of Arkansas,” ARDOT Director Lorie Tudor said. “We are thankful that Senator Boozman and Representatives Crawford, Westerman, and Womack support Arkansas’ transportation infrastructure. Not only will these investments enhance economic potential, they will also improve safety and mobility for all of Arkansas’ road users.”

“On behalf of the entire Highway Commission, we thank our Congressional Delegation,” Arkansas Highway Commission Chairman Alec Farmer said. “These projects will have a lasting impact on transportation in Arkansas. Moving us toward completion of future Interstates — be it Interstate 57 or Interstate 49; or east-west corridors like Highway 412 in northern Arkansas and Highway 82 in southern Arkansas; or investing in a bypass that will provide congestion relief and safe travel alternatives in and around Greenwood — are strong commitments to our future.”
