FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) will be widening and realigning Old Wire Road at Mission Boulevard (Highway 45) as part of the Old Wire Road Improvement Project. However, the construction will come at a later time, after wintry weather on Monday pushed back the scheduled improvements.

A segment of Old Wire Road between E. Calvin Street and Mission Boulevard was supposed to be closed starting Monday (Dec. 5) through Dec. 19.

The road will be closed 24 hours a day, including weekends.

Suggested detour routes will be marked and include using Broadview Drive, Ranch Drive, and Jordan Lane.
