This project proposes to enhance one of the most traveled roads in Arkansas. When complete, the improvements will enhance the transportation connection through central Arkansas, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.

|As of November 10, 2021, the I-30 eastbound lanes have shifted left between 9th and 6th Streets. The eastbound inside lane has concrete barriers on either side, separating it from westbound traffic and the eastbound middle lane. This change in traffic patterns does not impact any entrance or exit ramps along I-30. |

|New traffic pattern due to Broadway Street (Exit 141B) closure requires new traffic pattern involving a temporary Texas U-Turn at Bishop Lindsey Avenue and then returning to Broadway Street by the southbound frontage road. This new traffic pattern is expected to be in place until the end of 2022. See attached map NR 21-194-A for additional details. |

Arkansas River Bridge
The Arkansas River Bridge will be reconstructed to three through lanes with two collector-distributor lanes and an auxiliary lane in both directions.
The bridge will include an improved opening for the Arkansas River navigational channel.
North Little Rock
In North Little Rock, additional lanes continue eastbound through the Broadway Street interchange to Bishop Lindsey Avenue. The Broadway Street interchange will also be reconstructed.
Beginning at Bishop Lindsey Avenue, the project includes new pavement and re-striping eastbound I-30 to four lanes to the interchange with I-40 (North Terminal). This creates a fourth lane without widening the freeway or bridge structures to add capacity.
The Curtis Sykes Drive entrance ramp to eastbound I-30 will be north and east to tie into I-40 east.
Portions of the North Terminal will be reconstructed to remove an eastbound I-40 weaving issue between the North Terminal and the I-40/Highway 67 interchange. A bridge will be constructed to carry eastbound I-30 entrance ramp traffic over I-40 eastbound ramp lanes to enter traffic in the far-left eastbound lanes.
In Little Rock, I-30 improvements continue above a reconstructed I-30/Hwy. 10 (Cantrell Road) interchange (split diamond) and continues with four main lanesin both directions between 3rd Street and 9th Street.
A new wider bridge over I-30 will be constructed at 6th Street.
The Hwy. 10 interchange will be reconstructed as a split-diamond interchange. This will remove the clover leaf ramps and provide direct ramp access with the frontage roads.
There are several ramp improvements at the I-630 interchange.
Schedules are preliminary and are subject to change as project development progresses.
