Garland Avenue Tunnel Project
The City of Fayetteville’s Transportation Division will begin construction of a pedestrian trail tunnel near the intersection of Garland Avenue and Knapp Street (the north side of Agri Park) on Monday, October 17, 2011. This project will require a substantial excavation across Garland Avenue in order to set the pre-cast tunnel sections in place. Because of this extensive work, it is necessary that we close part of Garland Avenue.
The tunnel excavation and installation process will begin on Monday, October 17 and require approximately two weeks to complete. During this two-week period, traffic on Garland will be rerouted through the University of Arkansas’s Agri Park, and appropriate signage will be in place to safely direct motorists through the construction zone.
We appreciate your patience while the City works on this important project that will link the Scull Creek Trail to the west side of Interstate 540, thereby providing an important east-west connection of Fayetteville’s Alternative Trails and Transportation Plan.
Please consider an alternate route to avoid your travel delay; however, we will work hard to assist all traffic is detoured safely and as efficiently as possible.
