Springdale prefers 412 bypass to the north

(September 8, 2003) — (Springdale-AP) -- One of four routes under consideration by state highway officials for a U-S 412 bypass at Springdale has emerged as the favorite of area residents. The route would take the highway further north than any other design being considered. That's what many residents of the Callahan Mountain area in north Springdale like about it -- because it goes north of the mountain instead of south. Of those who expressed a choice during two public meetings lastmonth, 83 chose the northernmost route. The next-favorite route, the one furthest to the south, was picked by 50 of those who expressed a choice.
