Erbie Road and Low-Water Crossings

Project Description

Heavy rain and flooding over a three day period in May of 2015 caused extensive damage to Compton-Erbie Road (County Road 19), County Road 57, and Erbie Campground Road (County Road 79) in Newton County, Arkansas. The proposed improvements would repair the damage and provide a more sustainable transportation facility. At County Road 19 the proposed improvements would rehabilitate a 2.7 mile section of the road through the replacement of the base and surface course of the road and grading of the road and ditches for better drainage. Two low-water crossings would be replaced with vented fords and the road approaches would be reconstructed. The first low-water crossing is located along County Road 57 at Cove Creek, and the second is located along County Road 79 at Cove Creek.
