New Road To Be Built For Dassault Falcon Jet in Little Rock

The Little Rock Board of Directors is expected to approve a project Thursday to build a new road for one of the state’s largest employers.

About 1,800 employees and hundreds of contractors will have easier access in and out of Dassault Falcon Jet once the four lane road is constructed at the Little Rock airport.

Mayor Mark Stodola told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette the city is optimistic this will encourage the company to expand.

Additional land is being made available for the facility where work building private jets is completed.

The city was able to move forward with the road project after learning it had enough money left over from state and federal grants to pay for it.

In a statement, company senior vice-president for operations Bob Smith said it is “a long awaited and important step in improving the infrastructure serving Dassault and Little Rock National Airport.”
