Construction on the 11 Under Trails tunnel crossings beneath major roads in Bella Vista was set to begin March 4, but contractors ran into some hold ups related to utilities and the project has been delayed. More information will be provided as it is available.
The first tunnel will be constructed beneath Lancashire Blvd. (Ark. Hwy. 340) between Nature Trail Lane and Cannock Drive. The project will require one-lane traffic, controlled by automated control devices. Work should be expected from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Updates will be provided as construction progresses. Follow the city on Facebook and Twitter. Residents can also sign up to receive text alerts for information such as road closures by texting the word BELLAVISTA (one word) to 77453.
Weather and other unforeseen circumstances could affect this project. We appreciate motorists’ patience through this process.Spanker Bridge replacement projectss
