In response to the impending weather conditions, the Downtown Siloam Springs renovation project has been rescheduled to the backup weekend of June 17 through June 20. This decision was made by the diligent crews overseeing the project, ensuring that the renovations are completed with utmost care and precision.

The primary objective of this upcoming project is to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal and functionality of the downtown area. The streets will undergo a comprehensive cleaning process, followed by restriping and sealing to ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience for residents and visitors.

While unforeseen circumstances may occasionally disrupt plans, the rescheduling is a necessary measure to safeguard the quality of the renovation work. The City of Siloam Springs apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, and greatly appreciates the understanding and patience of the community during this period of adjustment. 

Stay tuned for further updates as crews progress with the Downtown Siloam Springs streets renovation project.


Downtown Siloam Springs is set to undergo street renovations starting in early June. Contractor crews will be responsible for cleaning, restriping, and sealing the downtown streets. 

The sealing process involves the application of a fog seal, which will cover the existing striping and include an oil component to enhance the pavement's durability. Additionally, an accessible parking stall will be added on Central Street.

Kevin Moore, Siloam Springs City Engineer, emphasized the benefits of this project, stating, "A significant advantage of this project is that it will conceal the old striping and alleviate the parking confusion we've experienced in downtown over the past few months. Moreover, the product utilized by the contractors will penetrate the asphalt and extend the pavement's lifespan. Although asphalt may appear solid, it possesses more flexibility compared to concrete. Over time, without that flexibility, it becomes prone to deterioration even under normal conditions. The fog seal restores some of that flexibility, helping prevent damage caused by weather and traffic loading."

The renovation process will commence with the streets being blown and pressure washed in the days leading up to the seal application. Starting from June 10 at 10 p.m., all downtown streets will be closed. On June 11, the application will begin, with the primary objective of completing Broadway Street and as much of the side streets as possible. The following days, June 12 and 13, will be dedicated to finalizing the sealing and striping of the one-way streets.

Don Clark, Siloam Springs Community Development Director, expressed gratitude towards the community for their patience during the project. He remarked, "We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the community for their understanding as we undertake this project. We are appreciative of the citizens' patience as this has been needed for quite some time, and we are thrilled to see it come to fruition after a long wait.”A map of the streets that are getting renovated downtown Siloam Springs.A map of the new accessible parking space coming to downtown Siloam Springs.
