Portion Of Highlands Boulevard In Bella Vista Closing Today For Next Five Weeks

Highlands Boulevard from Barrhead Lane to Kirkcaldy Drive will be completely closed during the five-week project as crews work to build a second tunnel under Highlands. The first tunnel was placed on Chelsea Road, which reopened Friday. The tunnels are part of a new trail system in Bella Vista.

Highlands Boulevard will close at 10 a.m. today. Heavy traffic, including large trucks, will detour onto Hiwassee Road to Arkansas 279 during the closure. Local traffic is encouraged to find the best alternate route.
