Osceola Area Economic Development Project
CHBP FY 2018 Grant Award: $16,161,000
Recipient: Arkansas Department of Transportation
The project replaces 14 bridges in Mississippi County near Osceola. These bridges are along Arkansas Highways 77, 140, 158 and 181 within 10 miles of Interstate 55.
The project improves the condition of 14 bridges from poor condition to good, of which 6 will no longer require posting restrictions. These bridges surrounding the community of Osceola will support local farms by improving routes to transport goods to market. As a Design-Build project, the designer and contractor will work together to develop and construct the project in a manner to reduce costs and time for construction.
