Highway 70 Widening Project Improves Transportation Safety in Arkansas

Michael Baker provided environmental and design services for a widening project of U.S. Highway 70 between Interstate 30 and the city of Hot Springs, Arkansas. This $78.5 million construction project for the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) expanded the 18-mile stretch of highway from two lanes to five, reconstructed four bridges, constructed 20 box culverts, and signalized a key intersection to improve safety for both local and through traffic. The enhanced corridor was formally opened to traffic at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 1, 2018.
