Traffic has been tricky where Poplar Street intersects with Main Street in Benton for the last few weeks, but Mayor Rita Dotson said Poplar Street is scheduled to reopen today at 2 p.m.

Dotson, in a statement posted on social media, thanked the community for its patience with the 6th Street detour, noting it went fairly smoothly. 

Dotson said she will share more construction updates as that information becomes available.
