BENTON COUNTY (6-11) – Crews performing bridge work on State Highway 612 (future U.S. Highway 412 bypass) in Springdale will require lane closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting; lanes on State Highway 612 will alternately be closed for eastbound and westbound directions between Wednesday, June 13 and Wednesday, June 20 during daytime hours. This will allow the contractor to perform minor cosmetic improvement on bridges between the Wagon Wheel Road overpass and the West Miller Overpass.

Traffic will be controlled by construction barrels and signage.
