ARDOT crews will close a lane under the Interstate 30 overpass for about a week. The Arkansas Department of Transportation needs to have flagging operations on Pawnee Drive. This is part of the project to widen that section of I-30 to six lanes.
This closure will allow for continued bridge construction in the area. Watch for this lane closure to begin on Monday, September 25th, weather permitting. It should end on Friday, September 29th. Read more below. 👇🏻
If the work requires a short-term full closure of Pawnee Drive rather than the use of flagging operations, it will occur during the following time periods.
- 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Traffic will be controlled with message boards, construction barrels, barricades, signage, and flagging operations. 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.
