— Arkansas highway officials say they are about to begin a $79 million project to rehabilitate a stretch of Interstate 49 in western Arkansas.

The agency said Friday that the work will involve seven miles of I-49 between Interstate 40 and Arkansas 22 in the Fort Smith and Van Buren areas.

The project includes replacement of nine bridges and improvements to four bridges in Crawford and Sebastian counties. Highway officials say more than 50,000 vehicles travel the construction area daily.

The work is part of the 2011 Interstate Rehabilitation Program, which has $1.2 billion devoted toward improving 450 miles of interstate highways in Arkansas.

In the future it will be interstate 49. For now it is I-540. Arkansas has to complete the Bella Vista Bypass before 540 will be renumbered 49.
