Section of Deane St. to close July 25 - Aug. 14 for Midtown Corridor construction
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — As part of construction for the Midtown Corridor project, the section of W. Deane St. from N. Porter Rd. to N. Sang Ave. will be closed for three weeks to allow crews to install four pipe crossings across Deane.
Construction is set to begin Monday, July 25, with Deane anticipated to reopen Monday, Aug. 15. Detour signs will direct traffic to use Skylar Dr. via Porter and Sang.
The temporary closure is part of the Midtown Corridor project that includes work on Porter, Deane, W. Sycamore St. and Poplar St. – an important east-west connection for vehicle and bus traffic. In addition to the new 1.75-mile Midtown Trail, the project includes new curbs, storm drainage, lighting, street trees and sidewalks with greenspace
The project is partially funded by the Streets Improvement Bond approved by Fayetteville residents in 2019. For more information on the Midtown Corridor project, including design plans, go to: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/3877/Midtown-Corridor-Project.
