LITTLE ROCK (4-3) 

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) will be conducting a motorist survey in Van Buren and the surrounding area in the coming weeks.  This survey is being conducted as a part of a study to evaluate accessibility to Interstate 40 and will help determine traffic patterns in and around Van Buren. 

The survey will be conducted by AHTD staff during the weeks of April 6th, April 13th, and April 20th.  Surveys will take place during the morning and afternoon/evening hours.

Motorists will be stopped briefly and asked several short questions about the origin and destination of their trip.  Arkansas Highway Police officers will be present to ensure traffic safety during the survey periods.

Please allow for extra travel time during this two week period.  AHTD appreciates the patience and participation of the citizens of Van Buren and the surrounding area.  Questions or comments about the survey may be directed to the Public Affairs Office at (501) 569-2227.
