Bridge Work on I-30 in Benton will Involve Slow Rolling Lane Closures

Crews will use slow roll lane closures on Interstate 30 in Benton below the South Street bridge next week during overnight hours, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will be working on the South Street bridge over I-30 Monday through Thursday nights, June 21 to 24. To allow construction crews to work, the Arkansas Highway Police will use slow rolls on I-30 through the work area. In addition, traffic on the frontage roads will be stopped by flagging operations for short periods of time to facilitate the work. 

  • Mon., June 21 | 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. | Frontage Road north of I-30
  • Tues., June 22 | 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. | I-30 westbound 
  • Wed., June 23 | 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. | I-30 eastbound
  • Thurs., June 24 | 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. | Frontage Road south of I-30

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.
