Construction on the intersection of Eighth Street and Skyline Road in north Arkansas City gets underway today, as part of an ongoing reconstruction project. A temporary drive from Eighth Street into MeadowWalk Apartments, 925 W. Skyline Road, has been built for the local residents between Building 14 and Building 18. All existing access drives into or from MeadowWalk Apartments to Skyline Road are closed beginning today, and now all residents along Skyline Road and North Eighth Street will need to utilize Radio Lane for access. Meanwhile, the intersection of Skyline Road and 61st Road will be opened to accommodate all northbound and southbound traffic to and from Goff Industrial Park Road. All employees in the Goff Industrial Park area, including Creekstone Farms Premium Beef, will need to utilize 61st Road for access in lieu of Eighth Street. Construction is expected to be completed by May 31, 2016. The engineer’s estimate for the project was $3,179,223.
