Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires a temporary closure of the Interstate 30 frontage road (on the north side of the interstate) at the South Street Bridge in Benton.
Weather permitting, crews will close the frontage road below the bridge beginning Sunday evening, June 5 and it will remain closed for about one month. This maintenance of traffic plan will allow construction crews to prepare for moving traffic into the roundabout later this summer. Detours will be signed to use West Sevier Street and Bell Street to return to the frontage road or to cross over the South Street Bridge. See detour map NR 22-121-A for additional information.
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.
