JONESBORO, Ark. – A Jonesboro street will be getting much needed repairs to it starting this week.
A repaving process that will require about four weeks has begun on Nettleton Avenue between Church Street and Caraway Road in Jonesboro.
Travel will be reduced to two functioning lanes in stretches as milling begins Tuesday, March 3, and continues for the rest of the week. Milling will be performed 7 a.m.-5 p.m. each day.
Curb and gutter repair, followed by repaving, will be finished by April, weather permitting, City Streets Supervisor Steve Tippitt said.
Mayor Harold Perrin asked motorists to patient and said this is only the beginning of several highway and streets projects that will be performed around the city this spring and summer.
“We have several projects in 2020 that will improve our streets and traffic flow, so we ask everyone to be patient,” Perrin said. “Nettleton Avenue is a significant arterial, and it needs resurfacing so I will be glad when it’s complete.”
Other projects on tap this year include added lanes at Caraway and Highland Drive, continued progress on the Arkansas 18 railroad overpass, widening at Harrisburg, Parker and Forest Hill roads, intersection improvements at U.S. 49 and Parker Road, and widening at Southwest Drive/Main Street and Highland.
