NWA Razorback Regional Greenway


The Razorback Regional Greenway project is an off-road trail network that will connect the Northwest Arkansas region including the cities of Bella Vista, Bentonville, Rogers, Lowell, Springdale and Fayetteville along a 36-mile bicycle, pedestrian and mobility corridor. This project is a national model for active transportation, green infrastructure, healthy living, equitable and sustainable economic development and public/private partnerships.  The Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission played an important role in obtaining the federal funding and continues to facilitate a team effort within the NWA community, bringing numerous organizations together to form a cohesive team to move this important project forward.

McClelland Consulting Engineers, Inc., provided professional surveying services for approximately 16 miles of the Razorback Regional Greenway project located in Northwest Arkansas. The scope of work included establishing survey control for the project and identification of land ownership and right-of–way along the route of the Greenway. MCE also assisted the project design team to develop an acquisition strategy for securing the right-of-way for this project.  Additionally, MCE prepared legal plats, easements and other right-of-way documents required.  MCE also coordinated with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department to obtain access permits for both uncontrolled and controlled access roadways, and participated in public meetings where they presented the results of alignment and surveying work.

The total cost of the project was approximately $38.5 million. Approximately half of the project was funded via the federal government by way of a $15 million TIGER II Grant awarded as part of the 2010 Appropriations Act. Additional matching funds were provided by the Walton Family Foundation.  Other private sources provided support as well.
