You’ll want to use caution on the north side of the South Street bridge on Interstate 30. It’s a little different than it was last week, according to the Arkansas Department of Transportation.
A new traffic pattern is in place at the roundabout where the South Street bridge and Sevier Street meet. Overnight, ARDOT crews moved eastbound traffic into the new roundabout. That happened late night on Saturday, February 4th.
That means now when you enter the roundabout, and you want to go to Sevier Street (toward Caldwell Elementary) or the South Street bridge (toward Big Red/Hardee’s), you’ll take the first exit. If you’re going to continue on the Frontage Road, you’ll take the 2nd exit on the roundabout (toward Bullock’s/Blue Heaven/Hwy 229). See the map ☝🏻above that shows the current traffic pattern. See the map 👇🏻below for where this intersection is located.
ARDOT advises the public to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds. Also, areas near the Interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.
This project (Job CA0601) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of Interstate 30 to three lanes in each direction, from the interchange with U.S. Highway 70 (Exit 111) to Sevier Street in Benton (Exit 116). The project also includes improvements at the Highway 67 interchange (Exit 114). More information on this $187.3 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov.
