Jenny Lind Road and Ingersoll Avenue


The project length is approximately 1.2 miles along Jenny Lind Road and 1.0 miles along Ingersoll Avenue in Fort Smith. The improvements consist of widening Jenny Lind Road to five lanes beginning at Cavanaugh Road and continuing north to approximately 350 feet north of the intersection with Zero Street. The improvements also included the widening of Ingersoll Avenue to three lanes between U.S. 271 and Jenny Lind Road and the extension of Ingersoll Avenue to the east crossing Mill Creek to tie to U.S. Highway 71. Realignment of McKinley Avenue east of U.S. Highway 71 to align with Ingersoll Avenue was required. New traffic signals were designed at the intersections of Ingersoll Avenue with U.S. Highway 271, Jenny Lind and Ingersoll Avenue, U.S. Highway 71 and Ingersoll / McKinley Avenue.
