Portion of Cullen Hills Drive to close for construction

UPDATE SEPT. 17 - A utility relocation has delayed this project, but contractors are working to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible. We are in regular communication with the contractors as they work through these issues.

Construction on the 11 Under Trails tunnels beneath major roads in Bella Vista continues.

Crews will begin working on the third tunnel on Cullen Hills Drive the week of July 29.

A section of Cullen Hills Drive, immediately south of its intersection with Scalloway Drive, will be completely closed during the project, which is slated to take approximately four weeks. Motorists will be diverted on a designated detour along Scalloway Drive to Sherlock Drive during the closure.

The section of Highlands Blvd. will remain closed as well, until that project is complete. Contractors are currently waiting on approval from the Arkansas Health Department following a water line relocation, and then will begin installing the tunnel, which is already assembled at the site.

The Cullen Hills Drive closure will coincide with the Highlands Blvd. closure to speed up the overall construction timeframe for all trail tunnels in the city.

Updates will be provided as construction progresses. Follow the city on social media, and residents can also sign up to receive text alerts for information such as road closures by texting the word BELLAVISTA (one word) to 888-924-1255.

Weather and other unforeseen circumstances could affect this project. We appreciate motorists’ patience through this process.
