PULASKI COUNTY (10-15) –      Construction on Interstate 30 in Little Rock requires a major traffic shift for the next stage of improvements, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the I-30 eastbound lanes will shift left between 9th and 6th Streets. The eastbound inside lane will have concrete barriers on either side, separating it from westbound traffic and the eastbound middle lane. This change in traffic patterns will not impact any entrance or exit ramps along I-30.

This traffic split is expected to occur the beginning of November and be in place through summer 2022. This traffic pattern is similar to the traffic shifts used during current construction on the I-430 river bridge. See traffic shift map NR 21-342-A for an illustration.

NR 21-342 A
