  • Temporary Overnight Closures of Hwy. 67/229 below I-30
    As part of ARDOT’s construction to widen I-30 to six lanes in Saline County, the work requires future overnight closures of Highway 67/229 below the I-30 bridge. Weather permitting, crews will close Hwy. 67/229 below I-30 at Haskell Exit 114, between the Frontage Road north of I-30 and Pawnee Drive. Over the course of two separate operations in late April and early May, crews will set a bridge for a temporary I-30 westbound bypass and then demolish the existing I-30 westbound bridge over Hwy. 67/229 once traffic has been moved to the bypass.

    The first time the closure of Hwy 67/227 below the I-30 bridge is needed should be toward the end of April. This first operation is expected to require the closure during one night. The second operation will be in May, over the course of several nights. The highway is scheduled to re-open to the public during daytime hours.

    See link below for detour routes. Additional information will be published nearer to the closure dates.
