West Avenue and Fay Jones Woods entrance / City of Fayetteville
The concept images for the first phase of Fayetteville’s Cultural Arts Corridor project are now available to view.
City officials last week held two public information sessions which included the display of five image boards that show the latest designs for the project. The images were posted online following the events.
The initial phase of the project will include work on the Fay Jones Woods, located west of the Fayetteville Public Library. The area is set to include accessible trails, a canopy walk, an overlook, a picnic area, and restoration of Tanglewood Branch Creek. The first phase will also include work along West Avenue and improvements to the Razorback Greenway through the planned corridor.
Conversion of the parking lot on West Avenue (aka the WAC lot), which would first include construction of a new parking deck, will come in a later phase.
Construction on the initial phase is scheduled to begin in mid-2020, according to the boards shown last week. The parking deck could begin construction as early as September. The second phase, which includes converting the West Lot into a civic space wouldn’t begin until the parking deck is completed, which would likely be about a year later.
More information about Phase One of the Cultural Arts Corridor project, including drawings is available at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/3749/Cultural-Arts-Corridor.
Those who are unable to attend one of the public information sessions can submit questions to Speak Up Fayetteville.
