Agency approves Grant County highway project

The Arkansas State Highway Commission approved a bid to resurface 2.1 miles of Oak Street in Tull in Grant County.

Redstone Construction Group Inc. of Little Rock was awarded the contract at $195,210. The work will extend west from Pine Street to the Saline County line, according to the highway department.

Construction will start in two to four weeks, weather permitting, and should be finished this summer.

This project is being funded through the State Aid City Streets Program approved by lawmakers in 2011 and voters in 2012. This program provides $20 million annually from the state motor fuels tax to assist cities with projects selected by a nine-member panel of Arkansas mayors.
