Bryant Parkway and Highway 5 Intersection Traffic Light is a GO!

GREEN LIGHT

The City of Bryant received official approval from the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) to install a temporary traffic light at the intersection of Bryant Parkway and Highway 5.  


Currently, Highway 5 is being re-designed, and plans are in place to expand the state highway from Benton to the Pulaski County Line. Preliminary designs show that this intersection is scheduled to receive a traffic light. However, it will be several years before the design and construction will begin. 


Approving the temporary light will give a solution much sooner to the traffic safety concerns at this intersection while allowing the engineering and design work to be completed on the expansion project itself, adhering to ARDOT’s timeline.  


Bryant City Council will vote to approve the $90,000.00 needed for the city to install the traffic signal during Tuesday night’s upcoming meeting.  Following that meeting, the city will engage a contractor, and we will keep you updated on project progress and expected timelines.
