Construction projects line Wedington Drive in Fayetteville, as growth continues in Northwest Arkansas along Interstate 540.

Nearest to the Wedington exit from the interstate, is the construction site for the first Casey's General Store in Fayetteville.

There are other Casey's stores throughout the region. Company officials placed a bid to the City of Fayetteville for land back in February, but the city decided to sell to Kum & Go. For more information, click here.

Also being built on Wedington Drive is a Hilton Garden Inn, Walgreens and First Security Bank.

"Last year I lived off of MLK and there's a lot of businesses over there, looks like it's kind of turning into that, which is good." Tyler Benda said.
