The Arkansas Department of Transportation plans to widen U.S. 82 from Lake Village to the Ashley County line.

The Arkansas Department of Transportation held a public involvement meeting on Thursday to discuss improvements on U.S. 82 between Montrose and Lake Village.

Plans call for the widening of U.S. 82 from just east of the U.S. 82-U.S. 165 intersection in Montrose, to U.S. 65 in Lake Village.

The project includes the replacement of five bridges. One of the bridges would be over the Boeuf River, and another over Big Bayou.
