Maple Street Bridge
Posted April 3, 2016, by Trish W (trinity8419 [at] gmail [dot] com)

From Arkansas Democrat Gazette article by Bill Bowden, 4/3/16: Restoration scheduled to begin on the Maple Street bridge after completion of Lafayette St. bridge. Contract awarded to Crossland Heavy Contractors of Columbus, Kansas, to do the $1.73 million restoration on both the Lafayette St. bridge and the Maple St. bridge. Fayetteville's city engineer Chris Brown said sidewalks will be wider along both bridges, encouraging more pedestrian traffic. The lights also will be replaced, Brown said. He said the restoration work should take about three months on each bridge. Restoration is scheduled to be complete by September 9, 2016.
