ARDOT will be working on Interstate 30 overnight through the year end.
This will include occasional closures eastbound and westbound between US Hwy 70 (Exit 111) and Sevier Street (Exit 116). This construction is part of a project to widen the Interstate 30 to six lanes.
The specific dates for the periodic closures are 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on December 1-22 and Dec 28-30. Depending on the location, an inside or outside lane will be closed to allow crews to work.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage, along with assistance from the Arkansas Highway Police. 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.
