Construction Requires Overnight Lane Closures on Interstate 30 in Saline County

April 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires overnight lane closures on the interstate, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will be working in the eastbound and westbound lanes between U.S. Highway 70 (Exit 111) and Sevier Street in Benton (Exit 116). This work will occur during overnight hours, from Friday, April 3 through Thursday, April 30. Depending on the location, an inside or outside lane will be closed to allow crews to set barrier wall, restripe pavement and perform drainage work.

Watch for slower traffic speeds as eastbound lanes will be reduced to one open lane between 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Westbound lanes will be reduced to one open lane between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage, along with assistance from the Arkansas Highway Police. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone. Areas adjacent to the interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.

This project (Job CA0601) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of Interstate 30 to three lanes in each direction, from the interchange with U.S. Highway 70 (Exit 111) to Sevier Street in Benton (Exit 116). The project also includes improvements at the Highway 67 interchange (Exit 114). More information on this $187.3 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.

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