SALINE  COUNTY (1-7) – Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires daytime westbound I-30 lane closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the inside and outside lanes of I-30 westbound will alternately be closed this afternoon at the interchange with Highway 229/67. Crews will be working to repair potholes and make pavement repairs in the main lanes.

The rolling lane closures will be controlled with construction barrels and signage, with assistance from the Arkansas Highway Police.

This project (Job CA0601) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of Interstate 30 to three lanes in each direction, from the interchange with U.S. Highway 70 (Exit 111) to Sevier Street in Benton (Exit 116). The project also includes improvements at the Highway 67 interchange (Exit 114). More information on this $187.3 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @IDriveArkansas for traffic and @myARDOT for everything else.
