Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires a short-term closure of Fairfield Road at its connection with the I-30 frontage road in Benton.
Weather permitting, crews will close Fairfield Road between the I-30 frontage road and Jackman Street from Tuesday, May 31 through Tuesday, June 14. Detours will be signed to use Citizens Drive and Jackman Street to connect with Fairfield Road. Access will be provided to home and properties north of Jackman Street by following the detour. See detour map NR 22-110-A.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels, barricades, 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.
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. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
