Portion of Stadium Drive to close through May 10


A portion of Stadium Drive is scheduled to close from the Leroy Pond Drive roundabout north to West Clinton Drive from Friday, Feb. 24 through Wednesday, May 10.

The closure is part of a project to straighten Stadium Drive and build a new roundabout at the Clinton Drive intersection, according to a University of Arkansas news release.

Motorists travelling north on Stadium Drive from the Fayetteville High School area will have to detour around the construction zone and head west on Leroy Pond Drive to Razorback Road.

Drivers heading south on Stadium Drive should travel east on Clinton Drive, or west on Meadow Street to Razorback Road.

According to the university, future road closures are expected as the project continues.

The closure will not affect Razorback Transit routes, which were changed earlier this year to accommodate future construction.
