Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires 15-minute full road closures during overnight hours on Highway 67/229 below the I-30 bridge.
Weather permitting, crews will temporarily stop traffic for up to 15 minutes at a time on Highway 67/229 below the interstate at Haskell Exit 114. Highway traffic will stop between Pawnee Drive and the frontage road north of I-30. This work will occur Monday and Tuesday nights, March 28 and 29 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
These temporary traffic stops will allow crews to set steel girders for the new I-30 westbound bridge over the highway. Traffic will primarily be controlled with flagging operations and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds. Areas adjacent to 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.
