The state highway department has released a map for the north half of the “Hwy. 36 – Hwy. 67 Connector” or “Searcy bypass.”
It appears the highway will travel down Holmes Road, rather than further up the ridge, down the path of Covington Road as previously reported by county officials.
The highway department has also released this comment form to allow local residents to weigh in on the proposed map.
This most recent route has caused some controversy locally since it will require some Searcy citizens to vacate their homes.
Funding for the north portion of the bypass (picture above) will be discussed at a special meeting tonight at 7 p.m. at Searcy City Hall.
