One of those projects includes the Roosevelt Rd. Bridge in front of the Arkansas State Fairgrounds.
The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) says it doesn't want to start a project because it's not sure if money from DC will come through to help pay for it.
"We've all put a lot of time and effort into this project and it's a shame we're going to have to wait a little bit longer to see that project come about now," says Randy Ort.
Senator John Boozman says a new highway bill is a top priority and that he remains confident Congress will find a solution to "make sure we have a funding source to maintain our nation's roadways."
