Construction Requires Lane Closures on Interstate 630 in Little Rock

Construction to widen Interstate 630 requires lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, eastbound and westbound I-630 will have the middle and outside lanes closed east and west of the John Barrow Road overpass (Exit 6B). One lane of traffic will remain open in each direction during the work, which will occur during overnight hours from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday night, October 1 and Wednesday night, October 2. This will allow crews to paint the overpass. Entrance and exit ramps will remain open during the work.

The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone, and drivers may consider finding alternate routes as delays may occur. Traffic will be controlled using signage and barrels. Neighborhoods adjacent to the interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.

This project (Job CA0608) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. Interstate 630 is being widened to four lanes in each direction (eight total) for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening is estimated to be complete in early 2020. More information on this $87.4 million project is available at

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 @myARDOT.
