How $2T in Proposed National Infrastructure Could Impact NWA

NWA Daily

Last Wednesday, President Biden began pitching his $2 trillion infrastructure plan for the country. With thousands of miles of road and bridge improvements, what does this mean for Northwest Arkansas?

  • It's no secret that good infrastructure will play a key role as the region continues to grow. As more projects such as the Bella Vista Bypass are set to be completed later this year, ARDOT says they are always open to additional federal funding.

  • Quote: “Many people are moving here and the needs of our infrastructure are great, those are the present needs, we also have to keep an eye to the future and when I say the future I mean one day, I-49 is going to be the equivalent of what we see on Business 71," said Congressman Steve Womack. 40/29 News

  • An indicator as to where these additional funds might be allocated in NWA would be to improvements on HWY 112 to make it a major corridor and the northern Springdale bypass. The region's 2045 Master Transportation Plan can be found HERE.
