This project completes the five-lane widening of Highway 70 between Hot Springs and Interstate 30 in Benton. When complete, the additional lanes will enhance the transportation connection between the cities, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.
Construction with Lane Closures
During construction, motorists are encouraged to consider alternate routes during construction, including U.S. Highway 270. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through the workzone at reduced speeds. Lane closures are in place throughout the corridor and construction vehicles and equipment are entering and exiting the highway.
