A 1,310-foot section of Razorback Road between Cleveland and Maple streets is set to receive a sidewalk in 2012 as part of the Fayetteville Transportation Division’s sidewalk improvement project plan.

Fayetteville residents can expect to see over 5 miles of sidewalk improvements in 2011.

The city’s Transportation Division last week was given the go ahead by the City Council for a proposal list that includes 29 improvement projects in all four of Fayetteville’s wards.

The largest section of planned sidewalk is a 2,300-foot stretch on Mission Boulevard between Vandergriff Drive and Covington Park Drive.

Other large projects include sidewalks on Oakland Avenue, Razorback Road and Mt. Comfort Road.

The project list includes a total of 28,023 linear feet (5.3 miles) summarized by ward as follows:
Ward 1 – 5,545 feet
Ward 2 – 12,379 feet
Ward 3 – 5,837 feet
Ward 4 – 4,262 feet
