AROUND ARKANSAS- More upgrades are coming to roadways across Arkansas.

On Monday, the Arkansas Highway Commission approved a bid for improvements to several state highways including in Washington county.

The purpose of the project is to resurface more than two miles of roadway in Greenland and more than a mile in the city of Johnson.

This project is being funded through the State Aid City Streets Program established by the legislature and administered by the State Aid Division of the Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department.

This program provides approximately $20 million annually from the state motor fuels tax to assist cities with projects selected by a nine-member panel of Arkansas mayors.

Construction is scheduled to begin in two to four weeks, weather permitting. The project should be complete this fall.
