Geotechnical Work Requires Temporary Lane Closure on Interstate 49 in Bentonville

Geotechnical soil sampling for the improvements to the Battlefield Boulevard Bridge over Interstate 49 in Bentonville will result in a temporary overnight lane closure.

Weather permitting, crews will be present along Interstate 49 near the Battlefield Boulevard overpass to perform the geotechnical boring between Monday, January 17 and Friday, January 21. The work will require one temporary overnight lane closure during that time that will restrict southbound traffic to two lanes on Interstate 49 between Highway 72 and the Battlefield Boulevard overpass (log mile 86.8 – log mile 87.5) between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following day. 

Advanced warning signs and orange barrels will control traffic. Always be cautious when traveling through work zones.
