Greenway detour planned through Feb. 1 in Fayetteville

A section of the Razorback Greenway will be closed this winter while crews replace the trail’s aging asphalt surface with new concrete.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 12, the trail will close between West Center Street and West Meadow Street, according to a city news release. The work is part of the continued construction to develop The Ramble.

Trail users should use nearby North Gregg Avenue as a detour route. The road serves as a driveway for the trailside businesses between Center and Meadow.

Greenway traffic should be cautious of the changing surface conditions, according to the release. Signs will be installed to direct trail traffic and provide warning of adjacent work areas.

The Ramble, which opened in September, features a reconstructed section of the Greenway from Prairie Street to Center Street. Once complete, the new area will include 50 acres of outdoor public space.

Work for the project is funded by the cultural arts corridor bond, which was one of nine bonds approved by Fayetteville voters in 2019.
