Wolf River Boulevard to open Tuesday afternoon

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – A new route alternative for drivers using Poplar Avenue in eastern Shelby County is set to open Tuesday afternoon.

The new Wolf River Boulevard is opening after a special ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 Tuesday morning.

The 2-mile roadway is a four-lane, median-divided boulevard with traffic signals and it'll be open to drivers by mid-afternoon on Tuesday.

Once Wolf River Boulevard opens, drivers will be able to travel uninterrupted from the Interstate 240/Walnut Grove area to eastern Shelby County.
