BEEBE, Ark. (AP) - More than 3 miles of roadway between Beebe and El Paso will be widened from a two-lane to a four-lane highway by 2017.

The Searcy Daily Citizen reports (https://bit.ly/1netLa4 ) that the project is part of the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department’s Connecting Arkansas Program. The program includes 31 projects in 19 corridors. The funding for the projects comes from a voter-approved half-cent sales tax over 10 years.

The project between Beebe and El Paso starts will turn the two-lane U.S. Highway 64 into four travel lanes with a center lane.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2017.
