Congo Road/I-30 (Military Road)


Scope of services includes:

  • Construction Inspection

  • Construction Administration

  • Geotechnical Quality Assurance

Phase I of this project was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act; $1.6 million (80%) of the project cost, was funded by ARRA. The remaining 20% of the project cost was funded by the City of Benton. Phase II is being funded by the normal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program funds which is also an 80/20 match. Because this project is federally funded, and MCE is acting as the AHTD R.E. on this project, diligent reporting to the AHTD and FHWA is required to ensure that each phase of the project is met with approval by both agencies.

MCE is providing AHTD construction inspection for the two-phased Congo Road – I-30 (Military Road)  project in Benton, Ark. Phase I was completed in February of 2011 and consisted of relocating numerous utilities including the overhead electric, water and sewer lines as well as three underground storage tanks located at a gas station that was removed for this mile and a half long road widening project. MCE also coordinated with private utility companies to relocate their utilities for the future roadway widening project. The final cost of Phase I construction was approximately $2 million.

Phase II of this project consists of widening Military Road to accommodate future and existing traffic more efficiently and improving drainage, adding curb and gutter, sidewalks and additional traffic signals. This phase began in April of 2011 and will be completed in May of 2013. Phase II estimated construction cost is $8 million.
