Improvements to Interstate 430 Require Temporary Lane Closures in Pulaski Count

Construction work on the I-430/State Highway 10 interchange requires temporary lane closures, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

Weather permitting; workers will close all northbound and southbound lanes of
I-430 near Exit 10, for 15 minute intervals from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 and from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.

Weather permitting; workers will close all eastbound and westbound lanes of State Highway 10 (Cantrell Rd.) for 15 minute intervals from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 and from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.

These closures on I-430 and State Highway 10 will allow the contractor to conduct blasting operations for the new ramp being constructed that will carry traffic from westbound State Highway 10 to northbound I-430.

Traffic on both highways will be slow-rolled to a complete stop by the Arkansas Highway Police. Once the blast occurs, each highway will be swept for debris and reopened. There are no detours. Again, each closure is expected to only last 15 minutes.

Motorists should be aware of all advanced warning signs and traffic drums and should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ArkansasHighways.com. You can also follow us on Twitter @AHTD.
