Section of 412 Northern Bypass set to open

Posted: April 3, 2018 at 10:52 a.m.

SPRINGDALE — The first section of the U.S. 412 Northern Bypass is set to open later this month, according to state highway officials.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation has set an April 18 ribbon cutting for the 4-mile section between I-49 and Arkansas 112. The ceremony will be at 11 a.m. on the new roadway just west of Interstate 49.

The bypass is intended to relieve congestion through Springdale on U.S. 412, which is West Sunset Avenue, South Thompson Street and West Robinson Avenue. It is the city’s main east-west route.

The bypass will curve back south and connect to U.S. 412 on the west side of Springdale near Tontitown. It may eventually serve as a jumping off spot for an access road to the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport.

The project includes divided highway, 12 bridges and new interchanges at Arkansas 112, just north of Marchant Road and Carrie Smith Road, and I-49 between Wagon Wheel Road and West Monroe Avenue.

The eastern half of the bypass eventually will connect to U.S. 412 near Sonora, east of Springdale, but money has not been appropriated for that part of the project.

Work on the project started in April 2015. The project was the most expensive job in Highway Department history when it was let at just more than $100 million. Money from the 10-year, half-percent state sales tax approved by voters in November 2012 is paying for the road.

The section was not expected to open until the middle of next year. Eutaw Construction Co. of Aberdeen, Miss., is building the road.

Airport Authority Awards Two Major Construction Contracts as Part of Renovation and Expansion Plan

NASHVILLE – The Metropolitan Airport Authority (MNAA) Board of Commissioners at the January board meeting awarded two significant projects under BNA Vision, the Airport Authority’s renovation and expansion plan for Nashville International Airport (BNA).

Hensel Phelps has been awarded the Concourse D and terminal wings expansion project, and Eutaw Construction Company has been awarded the terminal apron and taxilane expansion project.

BNA Vision is an ambitious and growth-driven plan designed to meet the long-term needs of our airport and the city we serve,” said Bobby Joslin, MNAA board chair. “The awarding of both contracts today is the next major step toward building a world-class airport for our world-class city.”

“We are eager to bring Concourse D back to life with commercial air service, as well as add capacity to our Ticketing and Baggage Claim levels,” said Doug Kreulen, MNAA president and CEO. “In addition, the terminal apron and taxilane expansion will be vital to our future state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility, which is set to open in 2023. BNA Vision is well underway now, as multiple projects will soon be simultaneously in motion. It’s an exciting time for our airport.”

 

Terminal Apron and Taxilane Expansion

The $23 million construction contract for terminal apron and taxilane expansion project will add more than 500,000 square feet of additional space for aircraft parking and maneuvering, adjacent to the airport terminal. Anticipated completion date is spring 2019. This expansion will require in excess of 55,000 dump truck loads to fill in a 50-foot depression.

“We are very excited to be selected as the successful contractor for the terminal apron and taxilane expansion project at Nashville International Airport,” said Lane Williams, Eutaw Construction Company, Inc. regional vice president. “Eutaw Construction is fortunate to have enjoyed much success in the heavy civil construction industry, which includes a proven track record of successful projects in the airfield construction arena. Our dedicated staff of managers and supervisors are committed to putting their knowledge, experience and teamwork approach to work in order to deliver a successful project for MNAA and the city of Nashville. We look forward to the opportunity to work with the MNAA team, while following the Eutaw Mantra of completing this project ‘Safely, On Time, & Under Budget.'”

Eutaw Construction Company is based in Madison, Miss., with a local office in Franklin, Tenn. The company has 38 years of experience providing municipalities, state and federal agencies and the private sector with heavy civil construction services.

In January 2017, MNAA broke ground on BNA Vision, the Airport Authority’s dynamic renovation and expansion plan for Nashville International Airport, which includes expanded concourses, additional security screening lanes, state-of-the-art International Arrivals Facility, on-site hotel, transit station and more.
