PULASKI COUNTY (2-2) – Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires the temporary closure of Leander Street in Benton, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Leander Street has been closed between South Street and the I-30 eastbound frontage road through Friday, March 19. Crews will be installing pipe, grading, and laying new asphalt pavement, weather permitting.
Traffic will be controlled by signage and barricades. Adjacent property access will be provided during the closure.
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 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
