Regional planners and officials in several cities along Arkansas 265 want to create a shared vision of what the road will be like as it is built out over the next several decades. The road, also known as Dick Trammel Highway in honor of the former state highway commissioner, has been improved piecemeal over the last several decades. It serves travelers going north and south on the metro areas's east side, but it's a mishmash of designs and the width varies from city to city. Amenities for bikes and pedestrians also vary by city from none to on-street bike lanes to multiuse trails separated from traffic.
