Weather permitting, ARDOT will be striping pavement and placing a temporary barrier wall on Tuesday night, November 12, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Workers will occasionally stop traffic coming from eastbound Highway 70 (from Hot Springs) to westbound Interstate 30 (toward Malvern).
Traffic will be controlled with flagging operations, construction barrels and signage. The Arkansas Highway Police will also assist during the stoppages of traffic. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone. 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.
