The opening of Arkansas 549 in Texarkana has been delayed due to poor weather conditions.
The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said rainy conditions have not allowed crews to complete the final touches to the highway, which is now scheduled to open the week of May 13.
A dedication and ribbon-cutting was performed Tuesday at the highway with plans to open it to traffic next week. The highway is part of the Interstate 49 corridor project, which is planned to connect the Gulf of Mexico with Canada, according to officials.
The Highway Department said it will later provide more information on the exact date the highway will open.
