Director's Message

 

Director Dan Flowers
Thank you for visiting ArkansasHighways.com. It is an honor for me to serve as Director of the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department. Some of the most ambitious highway construction programs we’ve ever undertaken are currently underway across The Natural State, and I’m proud to say that we are up to the challenge.

The people of Arkansas have shown tremendous confidence in our ability to maintain and improve our state’s highway system. Approved by voters in 2011, our Interstate Rehabilitation Program is now funding between 75 and 80 individual projects around the state. More than half of that work will be underway by 2015, and when completed, will give Arkansas one of the best Interstate systems in the country.

Our work isn’t stopping there. In November, 2012, voters approved Issue Number 1, funding our $1.8 billion Connecting Arkansas Program. “CAP” is a perfect name, since the planned improvements to our state’s four-lane highways will increase CAPacity and improve connectivity. And, because the revenue generated by Issue Number 1 has a CAP of 10 years, all this work will be completed in that timeframe.

We are thankful for Arkansans who have helped pave the way for a brighter future. Now, as we work to complete these projects, I’d like to remind all drivers to always use caution when entering work zones. We value your safety, and that of every member of our Highway Department family.

Our mission remains to provide a safe, efficient aesthetically pleasing and environmentally sound intermodal transportation system for the user. Rest assured that all of us at the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department will work our hardest to meet the needs of the traveling public across this great state.
