SPRINGDALE (KFSM) — Starting today (July 22), an intersection on Maple Avenue will be closed for at least a month for sewer improvements.
Maple Avenue at Deaver Street will close so a second crew can begin the boring operation that is part of a sewer improvement project. The intersection is just west of Northwest Medical Center and just east of U.S. 71 Business.
The intersection will be fenced off and closed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week starting today. The closure is expected to run until Aug. 19.
No thru traffic will be allowed, but a single eastbound, right-turn lane will remain open for emergency vehicles only from Deaver Street to Maple Avenue.
Drivers are urged to use caution in the area. Road signs will alert drivers to the closed sections and to detours.
Anyone with questions can call Springdale Water Utilities at (479) 751-5751.
