SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - A new interchange on Interstate 49 is now open in northwest Arkansas.

The Don Tyson Interchange opened Monday afternoon in Springdale. City officials say the new interchange should help relieve traffic congestion on Sunset Avenue, which is the main roadway used to get into and out of Springdale from the interstate.

Fayetteville television station KHOG reports (https://bit.ly/1kvIn2E ) that the interchange opened following a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday afternoon.

Construction on the $23 million interchange finished more than a month ahead of schedule. The interchange is named for the former president and chief executive officer of Springdale-based Tyson Foods Inc.
