Bentonville, AR…The City of Bentonville is excited to announce that the realignment of the Razorback Greenway at I-49 is underway. Throughout construction of the interstate, the Greenway has been cut in two, leaving many users unable to commute and ride recreationally between the northern city limits and many destinations in Bentonville. By working diligently with our partners at the Northwest Arkansas Trailblazers to design and build a new and improved greenway connection, the result will provide a safe, physically separated space for cyclists, runners, walkers, and all other trail users in Bentonville.
The estimated time of completion for construction will be a minimum of six months, but external factors such as weather could result in delays. This Razorback Greenway will remain open during this timeframe – with occasional construction closures. Please follow @playbentonville and @WeAreTrailblazers for information pertaining to brief closures and detours. Millstone Construction Company is handling the work for the project. CEI was responsible for project engineering. Funding was made possible by the Walton Family Foundation and Federal Transportation Alternatives.
Knowing this section serves as a highly traveled passage for both recreation and commuting purposes, the City of Bentonville apologizes in advance for any inconvenience or disruption. Please be respectful of construction crews on the greenway and mindful of all closures and detours.
