BENTONVILLE -- Work to reconnect the Razorback Greenway through the new Interstate 49 interchange in north Bentonville has been approved and could start by the end of the year, according to city officials.The greenway was severed in early August 2020 while the new interchange at U.S. 71B and I-49, part of the Bella Vista Bypass, was built. There is a makeshift, unofficial connection, but the work approved Tuesday night by Bentonville's City Council will rebuild the section permanently using a tunnel the Arkansas Transportation Department built as part of the interchange project, according to Hunter Garrison, bike and pedestrian planner for the city.
