North Street corridor work to close lane continuously for 5 days


Improvements to the North Street corridor will require a continuous lane closure for five days.

The one-block stretch of the eastbound lane of North Street from College Avenue to Washington Avenue will be closed for 24 hours a day starting Monday, May 13 and lasting through Friday, May 17, according to a news release.

The section has been closed only during the day on weekdays since April 15 for construction of a new dedicated left-turn lane, but crews now will be working on pavement repairs that will require a continuous closure.

Aside from the new turning lane, a crosswalk will be built on the south side of the College-North intersection, and new traffic signals will be installed.

Once the work is completed on the south side of the intersection, crews will transition to the north side of the street to continue making improvements.

Future phases of the overall project will include further improvements from College Avenue to Mission Boulevard and from Garland Avenue to Gregg Avenue. The work will feature sidewalks, shared-use paved trails, trees, lighting and intersection improvements.

The project is funded by the street improvement bonds that Fayetteville voters approved in 2019.

See more about the project at the city’s website.
