BRYANT, Ark. - Bryant residents will soon have a new gateway into the city located at the Echo Lake Blvd. overpass, formerly known as Raymar Overpass.
Optimistically the completion date could be as early as late in 2017.
According to Mayor Jill Dabbs, the City Council voted last year to enter into a partnership with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department to “fast track the project that will improve traffic flow and spur economic development for the city.”
Bryant’s growth over the past four years, according to Metroplan, has almost reached 20 percent.
“The vision of the city council and Mayor to invest in this project in an expedited manner will greatly benefit Bryant by creating additional traffic flow options and lead to additional job growth in Bryant,” said Planning Commissioner Jonathan Long.
