Clinton, Harmon intersection work to begin Monday, June 27
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Improvements to the intersection of W. Clinton Dr. and Harmon Ave. will begin Monday, June 27. Along with the installation of turning lanes on both Clinton and W. Center St., a traffic signal will be installed at the intersection, which sees a high volume of pedestrian traffic from University of Arkansas students.
During this road construction project, the stretch of Clinton from Harmon to the S. Stadium Dr. roundabout will be closed to through-traffic. Residents on this stretch still will have access to their homes. The road closure is anticipated to last until August 1.
Engineering Design Manager Matt Casey said, “Signalization will allow for a more orderly movement of traffic and a safer environment for pedestrians, and it will allow Razorback Transit buses to navigate the intersection more easily.”
The project is funded by the Streets Improvement Bond approved by Fayetteville residents in 2019. For more information on the project, including design plans, go to: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/3595/CenterHarmon-Intersection.
