PULASKI COUNTY (10-2) – Crews performing work along the Interstate 30 corridor in North Little Rock will require lane closures on the Interstate and a city street, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, crews will close the Riverfront Drive outside eastbound lane at the Locust Street intersection Monday, October 5 through Friday, October 9, daily between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Crews will be removing the sidewalk and beginning work to construct a new entrance to the Downtown Riverside RV Park, east of the existing entrance. Access to the RV park will remain open during the lane closure.
In addition, crews will close the two inside lanes of eastbound and westbound Interstate 30 in North Little Rock, between the Arkansas River and Bishop Lindsey Avenue. The work will occur during overnight hours on Thursday, October 8 and Friday, October 9, between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
The 30 Crossing project (Job CA0602) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program that was approved by voters in 2012. It is being funded with the proceeds from the temporary ½-cent sales tax that is set to expire in 2023. The passage or failure of Issue 1 at the polls this November will have no impact on the 30 Crossing work that is beginning this fall, including the construction of a new Arkansas River bridge and improved access to both downtowns. More information on the CAP 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 @myARDOT.
Through a voter-approved constitutional amendment, the people of Arkansas passed a 10-year, half-cent sales tax to improve highway and infrastructure projects.More
