NWA Daily

The good news: more people in NWA are getting active and riding their bikes around town. The bad news: bikes and vehicles don't always get along.

  • Paving the way: Arkansas Good Roads Foundation hosted the Safe Roads Summit in Bentonville last month, where local companies came together to discuss how infrastructure in NWA could better protect and encourage cycling in the area.
  • What's to come: The Arkansas 112 corridor project is a Complete Streets project that could create an 18-mile off-street side path. Walmart is jumping in as well by encouraging employees who live within five miles to bike to work.

Find out more about the Complete Streets initiative and what's in store for the area HERE.
