Traffic Delays Expected - Hwy. 5 North Area
The Benton Utilities Electric Department will begin work constructing a new powerline on Highway 5 North between E. Longhills Road and Salem Road starting Monday, July 11, 2016. Crews will be directing traffic to accommodate the construction during the day Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. This project is expected to take four to six weeks to complete, and major traffic delays will be experienced in this area during this time. We want to make sure anyone who travels in this region is aware that they can expect slowdowns, frequent stops and delayed travel time WILL BE IMMENENT, but our crews will strive to keep traffic issues to a minimum. Benton Utilities has secured the necessary permit from the Arkansas Highway Department as well as certified flaggers to direct traffic during this project.
