Mayor Bart Castleberry announced the City of Conway's upcoming transportation infrastructure improvement projects.

"We paved 58 streets last year and we're looking forward to fixing more streets this year," said Mayor Castleberry. "We know fixing our existing streets is a top priority for the majority of the people in Conway."

"Although we're proud of what we accomplished in the last year, we understand we have a lot of work to do. Unfortunately, we can't fix them all at one time, but we are headed in the right direction and we're making progress."

The City of Conway adopted the pavement management program in 2017 to help make data-driven decisions.

"The purpose of any pavement management program is to maximize our dollars," said Finley Vinson, director of the Conway Transportation Department. "In essence, our pavement management program maximizes the bang for our buck when we select streets."

We will continue to focus on our existing streets with the highest delay penalty. For example, we applied an asphalt overlay to Siebenmorgen Road last year. If we would have waited longer, then the road would need to be fully rebuilt.

Please take a moment to watch the video embedded below to learn more about how we use our pavement management program to make better decisions.

Pavement Management Program

As the City of Conway has grown, the increase in traffic congestion has put a strain on our existing transportation infrastructure. Funding for capacity and safety improvements have superseded maintenance funding in priority to meet the demand. We maintain 324 centerline miles of pavement that includes arterials, collectors, and residential streets. This program helps us evaluate and maintain our transportation infrastructure in the most cost-effective manner.


  1. Objectively evaluate the current conditions of the Conway's streets.
  2. Recommend projects that best utilize Conway's budget.
  3. Evaluate budget alternatives and needs for long term planning.


Conway Transportation Department

The Conway Transportation Department is solely responsible for maintaining approximately 365 miles of local roadways and approximately 60 traffic signals. In addition, the department provides engineering and construction services for the City of Conway. Read more.
