By Staff, 08/26/21 12:35 PM

Help is coming for Hempstead County Road 2.  The Arkansas Department of Transportation has awarded the Redstone Construction Group of Little Rock a bid for a “state aid” job on the historic road.  Redstone Construction Group of Little Rock big $592,250.36 on the job.

The historic road was the site of the county’s first paved road.  The route was originally the “Bankhead Highway” which was a paved highway which predates US67.  The “Bankhead” was built in the 1920’s with federal funds.  US 67 was built in the mid 1930’s.  County Road 2 is sometimes referred to as “old 67” but it wasn’t officially US67.
