PULASKI COUNTY (10-28) – Work along the Interstate 30 corridor in Little Rock requires an update to the detour route for the closure of the 9th Street on-ramp to westbound I-30, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

The 9h Street on-ramp to westbound I-30 in Little Rock is closed through mid-2021. To access westbound I-30, traffic on the southbound frontage road will detour east on 9th Street to the northbound frontage road and follow signs to East 4th Street to access the on-ramp from Cumberland Street. Local traffic will be able to continue southbound on the frontage road to access local city   streets.  See attached map for detour route.

The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds.

The 30 Crossing project (Job CA0602) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program that was approved by voters in 2012. It is being funded with the proceeds from the temporary ½-cent sales tax that is set to expire in 2023. The passage or failure of Issue 1 at the polls this November will have no impact on the 30 Crossing work that is beginning this fall, including the construction of a new Arkansas River bridge and improved access to both downtowns. More information on the CAP is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.

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