FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Beginning Monday, Aug. 21, a section of the Razorback Regional Greenway in the Dickson Street Entertainment District will be detoured to allow for the replacement of aging asphalt with concrete trail, as part of the continuing construction to develop The Ramble.
The 400-foot stretch of trail from W. Meadow St. to W. Spring St. is anticipated to be under construction for two weeks. During that time, trail traffic will be directed to N. West Ave.
The block of West from Meadow to Spring is being repaved this week. During the temporary detour, the southbound lane will be closed to vehicle traffic and dedicated to trail users with barriers for protection.
Greenway traffic should be cautious of the changing surface conditions. Signs will be installed to direct trail traffic and provide warning of adjacent work areas. Walkers, runners, and cyclists are asked to observe detours and other signs on trails and provide adequate distance between themselves and construction work.
Phase 1 of The Ramble, the Lower Ramble, opened Sep. 8 and features the reconstructed section of the Greenway from Prairie St. to Center St. When complete, The Ramble will be a dynamic 50-acre outdoor public space that will help to revitalize Fayetteville’s downtown area and create a destination for residents and visitors. It will showcase and celebrate local arts and culture and help link together several key cultural institutions in the area. The project is funded by the 2019 Cultural Arts Corridor bond, one of nine bonds approved by Fayetteville residents.
