Lake Francis Drive Rebuild To Begin in May

road work ahead sign

The process to rebuild Lake Francis Drive in Siloam Springs will begin in May. 

Here's a look at the changes:

The project will begin by replacing the existing waterline along the majority of the road, which is 1,600 feet of existing water line.

After that step is complete, Lake Francis Drive from Washington Street to the Railroad Right-of-Way will then be demolished and rebuilt to 27-feet in width. The road is currently 19-feet wide from curb to curb. The rebuild is approximately 2,220 feet long.

Curb and gutter will be constructed with a buried storm sewer for street and drainage improvements. 

The 'S' curve to the east of Roselawn Street will be smoothed out and extended to provide a safer route for vehicles. 

Sidewalks will be constructed from the Eliana Chacon Memorial Park extending east almost to the Railroad Right-of-Way

A shared use concrete path will be constructed on the north side of Lake Francis Drive from Washington Street to Azlin Place. 

Plus, flashing beacons will be added at the crosswalks where traffic is crossing on Lake Francis Drive.

The rebuild may take up to a year for crews to complete. We thank residents for their patience as we undergo renovations to make Lake Francis Drive better for our community.
