Northwest Arkansas Considers Traffic Management Plans

NWA Daily

The Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission has been presented with traffic management plans and strategies from consulting firm Cambridge Systematics to manage congestion and increase road safety across the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers metro area.

  • Due for an update: The initiatives presented focus on operational improvements to the existing infrastructure before building new roads, which should be faster and more affordable. The Regional Board hasn't updated its intelligent transportation plan since 2007.
  • Looking ahead: Rather than continuing to play catch up, these initiatives aim to make forward-thinking, lasting improvements that can sustain the growing population of NWA, projected to approach 1m by 2045, by coordinating city transportation plans rather than leaving each city to plan on its own.

It's National Library Week, and amidst the celebration of local libraries, Fayetteville Public Library will provide a chance to clear overdue fees and start fresh as part of its Amnesty Week, Apr 23-30.

  • Beyond books: This year's Library Week theme is "There's more to the story," highlighting that libraries offer much more than books. For instance, FPL regularly hosts events and classes to empower the community and programs for job skills training through the Center for Innovation.

This Thursday is Take Action for Libraries Day. Show your appreciation for FPL by donating HERE.
