 Highway 89 Railroad Overpass

• Crews are working on moving utilities, obtaining and clearing right-of-way. Funds are allocated and bidding is expected to begin in April or May of 2020. Construction is estimated to begin in summer of 2020. 

• On July 24th, 2018 the Mayflower City Council passed Resolution 2018-09, granting the City of Mayflower a partnership with Metroplan, ArDOT, and Faulkner County to finance the construction of the Hwy 89 railroad overpass realignment.  On July 17, 2018 the Faulkner County Quorum Court passed Resolution 18-04, appropriating funds to begin construction of the Highway 89 railroad overpass realignment. Along with Faulkner County, ArDOT and Metroplan will also finance part of the project, drastically reducing Mayflower’s share. The project is scheduled for completion in 2020.


City officials and representatives from AHTD held a public hearing in April to hear residents’ input on the project, AHTD chose the route for the overpass. “A Design Public Hearing was held to provide more detailed information and give area residents another opportunity to comment on the project,” AHTD spokesman Danny Straessle said in a news releaseThe presentation to residents included an environmental impact study, comparative costs, and discussion about how the alternatives fit into the City’s long term plan.  Public comments were collected through May 5th, 2017.
