LAWRENCE & GREENE COUNTIES (1-26) – Construction to widen Highway 412 in Lawrence and Greene Counties has progressed to the point that traffic will be shifted north onto newly constructed pavement, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will relocate two-lane traffic onto two newly widened sections of Highway 412 on Thursday, January 28. This will allow construction work to continue on the south side of the highway. The traffic shifts will occur in the following areas:

Traffic will be controlled by construction barrels, signage, and pavement markings. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.
