ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - Construction is expected to begin in March 2018 for a planned $1 billion pulp mill in south Arkansas.

Members of the Clark County Quorum Court were updated this week on the plans for the pulp mill, which will be built in Arkadelphia.

Stephen Bell is president and CEO of the Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance and Area Chamber of Commerce. He told quorum court members that the mill will be built along U.S. 67 across from the Clark County Industrial Park. Bell says that work is now in the “pre-engineering permitting stage” with construction planned to begin next March.

The Daily Siftings Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2rvkp6K ) that the plant will take two years to build and will require up to 2,000 workers during the construction phase.
