Now that city officials have narrowed their preferred locations for a planned downtown parking deck, it’s time for Walton Arts Center officials to weigh in.

Officials are planning a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the city’s first modern roundabout, a long-planned project set to be constructed near Washington Regional Medical center in north Fayetteville.

Fayetteville police announced another series of directed traffic enforcements at select intersections around town. The first round begins today.
