Zion Road Closure to be Extended Through July 30
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark—The closure of a section of Zion Road, from Vantage Drive to Old Missouri Road, has now been extended through July 30, 2021, to allow workers to complete installation of a new sewer line under the existing roadway. The road will be closed 24 hours a day during this extended period. Traffic will be detoured around the construction area, as described below.
Drivers traveling eastbound on Zion Road will detour south on Vantage Drive to Joyce Blvd, then turn left on Joyce and head east toward Old Missouri Road. Drivers will then turn left on Old Missouri Road, until they return to Zion Road.
Drivers westbound on Zion Road will detour south on Old Missouri Road, then turn right on Joyce Blvd. and head west until they reach Vantage Drive. Drivers will then turn right on Vantage Dr. and head north until they return to Zion Road.
The Zion Road improvements project is part of a 2019 transportation bond program designed to create an improved east-west connection between Highway 265 and College Avenue. The project includes roadway improvements, bicycle accommodations and sidewalks. Improvements to this corridor will offer a safer connection for all users as well as additional opportunities for residential and commercial development.
Please use extreme caution when traveling in the work area. Allow yourself extra travel time or consider an alternate route.
