A widening project that will expand Interstate 540 from four to six lanes between Wedington Drive and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard begins this week.

Two new restaurants and a bar opened in town over the weekend including BHK Kafe on the Square, Dickson Street Social Club, and the new Arsaga’s coffee shop and creperie inside a former railroad depot building off Dickson Street.

Police chief Greg Tabor last week announced the launch of a new feature that will allow tickets and fines from the Fayetteville Police Department to be paid online or over the phone.

This week’s scheduled public meetings include the Planning Commission, Street Committee and more.
