Springdale, Bentonville, Fayetteville, and Rogers comprise one of the fastest growing areas not only in Arkansas but in the country. Such rapid growth in population means added vehicle traffic and changing traffic dynamics as new construction increases.
Those in Northwest Arkansas are also aware of how pedestrian-friendly many parts of the area can be with walking and running trails aplenty, including the Razorback Regional Greenway that connects Fayetteville to Bentonville, with Springdale and Rogers in-between. Along with numerous college campuses and neighborhoods within “walking distance” of shops and restaurants, Northwest Arkansas is an excellent place for pedestrians to walk to and from their destinations.
Increasing vehicle traffic and increasing foot traffic can, unfortunately, result in increasing and dangerous vehicle and pedestrian interactions.
