Project Detail

The heart of the Pauline Whitaker Parkway is a large, two-lane roundabout intersection that was one of the first of its kind in Northwest Arkansas.

The parkway connects Champions Drive and Pinnacle Hills Parkway to the new Perry Road Interchange on I-540 near the rapidly growing economic center, The Pinnacle Hills Promenade.

It includes specialized lighting for safety and aesthetics. The east-west parkway begins directly across from the entrance to the Pinnacle Country Club on Champions Drive; and a specialized intersection was designed to accommodate the existing median and guard house with few necessary modifications.

Overall, special care was taken to provide a functional municipal street design while yielding a signature parkway and roundabout that serves as a focal point in the surrounding commercial district.

Peters & Associates worked with MWY to provide traffic analysis and intersection design.
