Highway 10 Widening Project Requires Significant Closures to the Interstate 430 Arkansas River Bridge

Improvements to the Cantrell Road (Highway 10) interchange at Interstate 430 require significant closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials. 

Weather permitting, crews will close all southbound lanes between Highways 100 and 10 and northbound traffic will be closed from the Rodney Parham interchange to north of the Cantrell Road interchange starting on Friday night, February 12th at 8:00 p.m. and continuing through Monday, February 15th at 5:00 a.m. The westbound Highway 10 to northbound I-430 entrance ramp as well as the eastbound Highway 10 to southbound I-430 entrance ramp will remain open.  This will include closing the entrance ramps in this section of highway and will allow crews to erect structural beams and install the safety platforms. This single weekend closure will minimize the number of nightly lane closures required, thereby reducing the risk and exposure to the motorist as well as the construction personnel.

ARDOT encourages drivers to avoid using I-430 north of I-630 and to avoid I-430 completely where possible. Truck traffic should use I-30 and I-440. All traffic north of I-630 will be diverted at the Rodney Parham Rd. Interchange (Exit 8) onto a detour route. Truck traffic will not be permitted on the detour route and will be re-routed to I-30 and I-440.

If you must travel in that direction for the weekend, please see the attached detour map. Motorists traveling along I-430 north of the Big Rock Interchange will need to exit at Rodney Parham Rd. (Exit 8) and drive westward to the intersection of Hinson Rd. and N. Rodney Parham Rd. and turn right, traveling north onto Rodney Parham Rd. and taking another right onto Pleasant Valley Drive. This will eventually lead drivers back to Cantrell Road
(Highway 10) where they can access northbound I-430.

Traffic will be controlled by traffic barrels and signage. 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.
