Project Updates

Job CA0907 Highway 112 – Interstate 49
This project constructs approximately 4.5 miles of the four-lane Highway 412 on new alignment in Springdale, generally extending from Interstate 49 to Highway 112.

Construction Progress



  • Construction
    Recent work includes placing steel bridge beams over West Apple Blossom Avenue in Lowell, and continued construction on the I-49 connector and Spring Creek bridge.
  • Travel Impacts
    The additional precast barrier wall installation along I-49 will be maintained after the southern lanes of I-49 are opened to six lanes. The inside (third) lane will remain closed for the project duration. Heavy bridge construction within the median is nearing completion, but existing I-49 lanes will be closed temporarily in the future for bridge steel placement. Trucks will be entering and exiting the roadway at various times. The public is encouraged to check local media outlets and the AHTD and CAP websites for the latest travel impact news releases.

    Existing traffic patterns have been shifted to a detour along the realigned Puppy Creek Road to allow for the new overpass construction over Spring Creek Road. The detour will be in place and used until 2018. Earth moving equipment and loaded dump trucks cross local roads frequently at various locations throughout the 4.5 mile corridor. Flaggers are at each location to help maintain traffic flow operations. Please use caution in and around the construction sites.
