LAWRENCE & GREENE COUNTIES (5-31) – Construction work to widen U.S. Highway 412 requires lane closures in Lawrence and Greene counties, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, lanes will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, from Tuesday, June 4 through Saturday, June 15. Traffic on U.S. Highway 412 will be reduced to one open lane as eastbound and westbound lanes are alternately closed in isolated areas for cross drain installation and asphalt overlay operations. The work zone for these lane closures begins 2.5 miles east of the U.S. Highway 67 interchange and continues to the Cache River bridge.

Traffic will be controlled by flagging operations, signage, and traffic cones. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and can expect delays due to the flagging operations and one-lane traffic.

This project (Job CA1003) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program to widen approximately 14.5 miles of U.S. Highway 412 to four lanes between U.S. Highway 67 in Lawrence County and State Highway 141 in Greene County. The project includes a southern bypass of the Light community. More information on this project is available at

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at or You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
