    FORT SMITH: Townson Avenue to have lane closures for a month

    By Reagan Netherland,


    FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Parts of Highway 71B (Towson Avenue) will experience lane closures due to a resurfacing project.

    Lane closures will be restricted to between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. Weather permitting, the closures should last about a month, according to a news release from the City of Fort Smith.

    This pavement preservation project involves milling and overlaying 3.8 miles of Towson Avenue, spanning from Highway 64 (Garrison Avenue) to Highway 271.
