The Arkansas State Highway Commission has accepted a bid to install a traffic signal, add a turn lane and make other improvements to the junction of Arkansas Highway 38 with North Second Street (Arkansas Highway 367), according to an Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) press release. The $663,000 contract was awarded to JCI Construction Inc. of Mayflower. Construction is scheduled to begin in two to four weeks, weather permitting, with a projected completion in December.
