Construction Requires New Traffic Patterns on Interstate 555 in Jonesboro

Weather permitting, construction crews will shift traffic from the Northbound Interstate 555 main lanes onto the southbound roadway on Tuesday, July 7.  There will be one lane of traffic in each direction separated by a concrete barrier wall until early 2021.  This work will occur between U.S. Highway 49 (Southwest Drive) and extend eastward to State Highway 463 (Nettleton Avenue). Motorists will enter and exit the northbound lane using the newly constructed median ramps. 

This construction work is part of job number 100959, a $33.8 million contract awarded to Koss Construction. The purpose of this project is to reconstruct 4.7 miles of Interstate 555 between U.S. Highway 63B and State Highway 18 in Jonesboro. The estimated completion date of this project is mid-2021.

Traffic will be controlled by signage, traffic drums and concrete barrier walls. 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
