PULASKI AND LONOKE COUNTIES (02-09) – Construction work to widen U.S. Highway 67 in Pulaski and Lonoke Counties requires lane closures and access ramp modifications, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ArDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, lanes on U.S. Highway 67 and the northbound frontage road will intermittently be closed during the week of February 12. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zones.

This project (Job CA0605) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 4.6 miles of U.S. Highway 67 from Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville to State Highway 5 in Cabot. The highway is being widened to three lanes in each direction. More information on this $79.2 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
