Lane Closures to Make Way for New Murals on Archibald Yell
FAYETTEVILLE , Ark . – Two new public murals soon will be created on the retaining wall along Archibald Yell Boulevard between Rock and Block streets .
As a result , the outside southbound lane on Archibald Yell will be intermittently closed beginning May 7 to allow room for the artists to work safely . Drivers are asked to be observant and use extra care when driving in this area .
A call for artists was made late last year to create two murals along the retaining wall along Archibald Yell . The murals will be located on the north and south ends of the wall . An update to refresh and preserve the existing Fayetteville Bulldog artwork near the intersection of Rock and Archibald Yell also is planned .
The Fayetteville Arts Council served as the selection committee and selected two artists , Austin Floyd and Jeremy Navarette , for the project . Work is anticipated to be completed in May , pending weather .
The murals are part of the street improvement projects made possible by a 2019 bond program , and they are intended to help improve the safety , walkability and overall enjoyment of Archibald Yell for residents and visitors . Additional
information on the safety improvements
is available to the public .
