A video highlighting the development of the new Razorback Regional Greenway in Northwest Arkansas won the grand prize in the Professional Production category of the “Faces of Transportation” competition. Developed by the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department, the video helps explain the various benefits of the trail system, which is currently in development.
The 36 mile trail from Fayetteville, AR to Bella Vista will connect the trail systems each city is developing. According John McLarty of the NWA Regional Planning Commission, “The Razorback Greenway is an important transportation link in Northwest Arkansas. It’s part of our alternatives transportation program and just offers an alternative to everybody being in cars all the time.” The Razorback Greenway will connect parks, attractions, schools, shopping areas and nature, and is expected to facilitate a healthy lifestyle for citizens of the NWA and bring attention to the environment.
