In hopes of alleviating traffic problems for customers, First Security Bank officials are working with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department and Hope Engineers to widen Carpenter Street in front of the bank.
At certain times throughout the day especially in the afternoon, it is difficult for customers to turn into the bank from Interstate 30 because of extra traffic traveling from Military Road, said Mark Vanderpool, First Security Bank president.
This widening should fit within the current right-of-way, he said.
The Traskwood Police Department and Saline County Sheriffâ€™s Office worked together to charge two people who are allegedly responsible for numerous burglaries in Saline and Grant County and the city of Benton.
Amanda Petty, 25, of Benton and Taylor Peden, 22, of Traskwood were arrested on Monday by Traskwood Police Chief Gary Middleton.
The investigation was then turned over to the Saline County Sheriffâ€™s Office Criminal Investigation Division.
