Alderman Karen Brooks stated during a workshop on Thursday night, "I recommend to incorporate the town of Bauxite." The city faces continued financial struggles and Brooks felt her suggestion was a viable option for the town located between Benton and Bryant.
Sheaff Avenue in Bryant was officially opened on Thursday following a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by city officials, employees and local residents.
The road connects Springhill Road on the south side of the overpass at Interstate 30 eastward to Woodland Road.
Monte Ledbetter, public works director for Bryant, says the opening of Sheaff Avenue is the completion of Phase 1 of a project that will eventually provide traffic congestion relief on Stagecoach Road and Reynolds Road, especially during the school year.
