PULASKI COUNTY (8-13) – Construction to widen Interstate 630 requires lane and ramp closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the I-630 eastbound middle and outside lanes will be closed before and after University Avenue during overnight hours Thursday, August 15, from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. During this time, the eastbound I-630 exit ramp (Exit 5) to University Avenue will periodically be closed for 15-minute increments to allow crews to install traffic control devises and shift ramp traffic.

The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone, and drivers may consider finding alternate routes as delays may occur. Traffic will be controlled using signage and barrels. Neighborhoods adjacent to the interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.

This project (Job CA0608) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. Interstate 630 is being widened to four lanes in each direction (eight total) for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening is estimated to be complete in early 2020. More information on this $87.4 million project is available at

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at or You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
