Update on Hwy 5 from Salem Road to Springhill Road (Kenneth Ray)

During the Benton City Council meeting last night (July 26), I asked Mayor Holland what it would take to work with Metroplan to move forward with plans to upgrade Hwy 5 to Springhill Road (Benton's portion). My question was sparked by Mayor Holland's announcement that Metroplan had began their study of Hwy 5 to Hot Springs Village.

Mayor Holland said Hwy 5 north toward Bryant was very much on the radar screen and that he and Mayor Mitchell of Bryant (both are Metroplan board…
