Significant Advance Notice

 I-30E On-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive in North Little Rock  to be Permanently Closed

Arkansas Department of  Transportation 
NR 22-133

PULASKI   COUNTY | June 14, 2022

The Interstate 30 eastbound on-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive in North Little Rock will permanently close in late June as part of the interstate and ramp construction work at the I-30/I-40 interchange.

The current on-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive does not meet current design standards and does not allow for the safe movement of ramp traffic to access I-40 westbound. This closure will allow crews to continue constructing a new I-30 eastbound to I-40 eastbound flyover ramp as well as a new on-ramp from the northbound frontage road to I-40 eastbound.

Traffic at Curtis Sykes Drive can access I-30 eastbound and the interchange with I-40 by taking the I-30 westbound ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive, using the Exit 141B ramp to Bishop Lindsey Avenue, and returning to I-30 eastbound. Depending on location, traffic can also use North Hills Boulevard and North Main Street to access I-40.

Additional information, including a specific closure date, will be available before the new traffic pattern begins. See map NR 22-133-A.

A long-term and permanent travel impact interactive map is available at, along with additional project information.
