In addition to the ribbon cutting, the corridor will be officially dedicated as the Thomas B. Schueck Highway. Schueck served as a member of the Arkansas Highway Commission from 2011 until his death in 2020, at which time he was serving as Chairman of the Highway Commission. Throughout his tenure, Schueck was an advocate for improvements to the State Highway System.
“This was one of Commissioner Schueck’s legacy projects," said ARDOT Director Lorie Tudor. "He was very involved in identifying the funding and provided guidance throughout the design. The success of this project is a tribute to his vision and leadership to improve mobility on Highway 10.“
Highway 10/Cantrell Road is a thoroughfare connecting the northern and western parts of Little Rock and Pulaski County. This widening project will help ease traffic through this heavily traveled urban corridor.
ARDOT served as the lead designer for the overall project and awarded the construction contract to the Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. at a cost of $81 million.
