Default When will the Bella Vista bypass be done?

Really, really want to move into Bella Vista but I work in Rogers and anything longer than a 15 minute drive would really get on my nerves.

I love the houses there, and the golf courses.

Since the bypass is on the western side of Bella Vista, I don't see it helping much with the commute to Rogers.

DC is right, but let me add: if you work in Rogers, just off 540 and move to the south/east part of Bella Vista your commute won't be that bad. As soon as you pass Lowe's everything opens up. If you still have a little drive when you exit 540 the drive could take you much longer.

Are there any plans to expand 540 to a six lane?

Construction to widen 540 between MLK and Wedington should start this month to be completed by fall. Widening of 540 from Wedington to Bentonville will depend on if a sales tax vote passes in November.

As much as I hate to see taxes go up for anything, there are times when it is necessary and this might just be one of them. With NWA growing so fast we have to improve our highway system. For those of us, who have lived in metro areas most of our lives, even the traffic on 540 during rush hour is not all that bad, but as the years go by, if something isn't done soon it is going to be a fricken nightmere.
