SALINE    COUNTY | June 2, 2022

Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires a temporary closure of the Interstate 30 frontage road (on the north side of the interstate) at the South Street Bridge in Benton.

Weather permitting, crews will close the frontage road below the bridge beginning Sunday evening, June 5 and it will remain closed for about one month. This maintenance of traffic plan will allow construction crews to prepare for moving traffic into the roundabout later this summer. Detours will be signed to use West Sevier Street and Bell Street to return to the frontage road or to cross over the South Street Bridge. See detour map NR 22-121-A for additional information.
