Reconstruction Requires Overnight Lane Closure on Interstate 440

Reconstruction of a section of I-440 requires lane closures from the Arkansas River to the I-40 interchange, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

On Friday, February 17, between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning westbound traffic on I-440 will be reduced to one lane. This closure will allow contractors to replace lane markings in preparation for a traffic shift.

Traffic will be controlled using advance warning signs and traffic drums. This project is expected to be complete late 2017, weather permitting.

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at or You can also follow us on Twitter @AHTD.
