UA plans Razorback-themed street signs around Fayetteville campus

University of Arkansas

University of Arkansas officials hope to install new Razorback-themed street signs around the campus area in Fayetteville.

City Council members next week will vote on a proposal that includes the removal and replacement of standard city street signs at 20 intersections on and near the UA campus.

If approved, the university will remove the existing signs and install the new signs at no cost to the city. UA officials have also agreed to maintain the new signs through the years, and to replace or repair any signs that are damaged or removed.

The proposed design for the new signs includes a black background with white lettering, and features a white Razorback logo on a red background on the left side of each sign.

The project was kickstarted by students last year and was followed by a pledge from UA Athletics Director Hunter Yurachek to use Razorback athletics funds to pay for the sign and installation costs.

Proposed locations include the following intersections:

  • Arkansas Avenue and Maple Street
  • Arkansas Avenue and Dickson Street
  • Arkansas Avenue and Reagan Street
  • Arkansas Avenue and Lafayette Street
  • Maple Street and Leverett Avenue
  • Maple Street and Whitham Avenue
  • Maple Street and Storer Avenue
  • Maple Street and Oakland Avenue
  • Maple Street and Lindell Avenue
  • Maple Street and Oliver Avenue
  • Dickson Street and Duncan Avenue
  • Dickson Street and Harmon Avenue
  • Dickson Street and McIlroy Avenue
  • Dickson Street and Garland Avenue
  • Harmon Avenue and Center Street
  • Harmon Avenue and Fairview Street
  • Duncan Avenue and William Street
  • Cleveland Street and Razorback Road
  • Cleveland Street and Hall Avenue
  • Razorback Road and Cardwell Lane

The proposal is part of the City Council’s items of consent on the agenda for the Tuesday, March 19 meeting.
