I Stand Corrected

A follow-up to my comments last week about the rain damage on US 71: an article in today's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports AHTD has awarded a $680,000 contract to fix US 71 north of Mountainburg. The project is expected to take up to 2 months and involves excavating the slide area and replacing much of the dirt with rock, allowing the area to drain more efficiently.

So, it appears I was in error when I wrote that nothing would be done except another patch. Kudos to AHTD for choosing to fix the problem instead of simply paving it over.
