PULASKI COUNTY (5-7) –  Construction on Interstate 30 in North Little Rock will require a significant weekend closure of I-30 westbound from the North Terminal Interchange at I-40 to Broadway Street, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will close I-30 westbound in North Little Rock starting on Friday night, May 21 at 8 p.m. and continuing through Monday, May 24 at 5 a.m. Single-lane closures will begin at 8 p.m., with all I-30 westbound lanes closed at 10 p.m. between the I-40 interchange and Broadway Street.  

NR 21-105 A

NR 21-105 B

 

These operations are part of a maintenance of traffic plan for the interstate bridge north of Broadway Street. Crews will shift eastbound and westbound I-30 lanes to the east and demolish the existing westbound bridge.  This single weekend closure will reduce the number of nightly lane closures required by approximately two weeks, thereby reducing the risk and exposure to motorists as well as construction personnel.

See attached detour maps NR 21-105-A and B. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.

A long-term and permanent travel impact interactive map is available at 30Crossing.com, along with additional project information. 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.
