PULASKI & LONOKE COUNTIES (02-01) – Construction work to widen U.S. Highway 67 between Jacksonville and Cabot requires overnight lane closures in Pulaski and Lonoke Counties, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the inside lane of southbound U.S. Highway 67 will be closed beginning north of State Highway 5 (Exit 16) and continuing south of State Highway 5, reducing traffic to one open lane. The lane will be closed Monday night, February 4 at 7:00 p.m. through Tuesday morning, February 5, at 6:00 a.m. Depending on inclement weather, this closure may be scheduled for another night later in the week. This closure will permit crews to remove concrete barrier wall to prepare for an upcoming northbound traffic switch to the newly constructed pavement.

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

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.
