SALINE COUNTY (9-19) – Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires temporary lane closures on the I-30 frontage roads, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, construction crews will begin work the week of September 22 on the South Street Bridge over I-30, which will require temporary lane closures for several months on the adjacent frontage roads east and west of the bridge.

Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels, barricades, signage, and flagging operations. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone. Areas adjacent to the interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.

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
