City Council votes to utilize federal aid emergency relief funds for the replacement of the bridge
Oct. 20, 2017
Pump Station Road Bridge was irreparably damaged after the April 2017 flood. Until recently, we have been working with FEMA to evaluate the damage to Pump Station Road Bridge. FEMA finished its evaluation and it was determined the City will work through the Federal Highway Administration to replace the bridge. This will require a 20/80 funding match.
City Council voted Oct. 10 to utilize federal aid emergency relief funds for the replacement of the bridge. The Arkansas Department of Transportation will take over the engineering and construction of the bridge, and the City will be responsible for handling the right-of-way acquisition and utility adjustments. We do not currently have a timeline for when the work will be finished, but we will post updates as information becomes available.
