All Roads Lead to Central Arkansas

Road construction is not typically the most exciting of conversation pieces. Interstates and highways are simply a mainstay in our busy lives that barely register day-to-day. However, road improvements, particularly on large thoroughfares, can mean major traffic for local businesses.
  
Admittedly, during the construction phase, commuters and travelers likely dread the orange cones and inevitable slow-downs that come with the territory. However, once those growing pains are over, our state enjoys additional consumers in increased numbers. Major corridor improvements between Little Rock and surrounding counties, particularly Faulkner and Saline, make it less daunting for travel. More residents are willing to make the drive to enjoy a concert at Verizon Arena, a day at the Little Rock Zoo, or an evening ballgame at Dickey-Stephens Park.
  
Not to mention, highway improvement projects can lead to an increase in workforce willing to commute. According to the Connecting Arkansas Program, "The widening of Interstate 40 to six lanes between Conway and North Little Rock…when complete, the additional lanes will enhance the transportation connection between the cities, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.”
  
Similar improvements were made to Interstate 30 between Benton and Little Rock in recent years, improving the quality of travel on the corridor. Of the Interstate 40 project, a representative with the Conway Chamber of Commerce stated, "It’s going to accommodate the growth that is coming….It connects us efficiently with the region, and it makes us a more attractive destination, regionally.” (Source: Log Cabin Democrat)
  
 
Simply put, when drivers have less dread about traveling between cities, they do it more. People move around more between communities in Central Arkansas when they can get where they are going. This makes Central Arkansas even more attractive for business owners. Better infrastructure leads to more consumer dollars being spent in the area. This equals a booming economy.
