AHTD Tourist Information Centers

Client:  Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department

Location:  Interstate 40, Arkansas

Engineer:  Garver

Crow Construction completed construction of a total of three new tourist information centers for the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department in 2017.  Two of the new centers are located along Interstate 40 between Hazen and Fredonia (White River) and the third is located along Interstate 40 Eastbound between London and Knoxville (Big Piney).  The tourist information centers are outfitted with self-service kiosks that feature the AHTD’s travel and construction information site as well as access to tourism and other travel and weather information.  They also include a greater number of restroom facilities that meet the latest Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, are more family friendly, and feature baby changing stations. The project also included construction of new maintenance buildings and a separate parking, vending, and bathroom area for truckers.
