AEDC to administer $250,000 for unpaved roads

Governor Asa Hutchinson joined officials with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) and the Nature Conversancy Tuesday as they presented a check for $250,000 to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission’s (AEDC) Rural Services Division. The funds will be used by counties across Arkansas to create a better unpaved county road system, reducing the negative environmental impact of eroding unpaved roads on priority water resources in the state. The program, to be administered by AEDC’s Rural Services Division, focuses on best management practices that reduce the impact of sediment and road runoff to streams, rivers, and drinking water supplies while reducing long-term unpaved county road maintenance costs.
