Construction of the Park Street portion of the Razorback Greenway is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The trail's path through the heart of east and downtown Springdale is expected to anchor redevelopment of the area.
The last 8.32 miles of the much-anticipated Razorback Greenway are under construction and are expected to be substantially complete by the end of the year.
Work on the trail is in full swing in east Springdale along Powell and Park streets, and north of downtown along Spring Creek to as far north as Garret Road in Lowell. The trail legs are about 60 percent complete, with a total contract cost of $8.92 million. Once finished, the 34-mile trail will connect Bella Vista to Fayetteville.
As crews continue to pound out the trail in urbanized and rural areas, Springdale continues to see interest from investors eager to participate in the micro-economy the trail, at least in part, is expected to support.
