SALINE COUNTY (4-20) –  Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires an overnight closure of Highway 67/229 below the I-30 bridge, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will close Hwy. 67/229 below I-30 at Haskell Exit 114, between the Frontage Road north of I-30 and Pawnee Drive on Saturday night, April 24, between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m.

This is the first of several operations in which crews will set a bridge for a temporary I-30 westbound bypass and then demolish the existing I-30 westbound bridge once traffic has been moved to the bypass. A second closure will occur over several nights in May. Traffic detours will be in place. See attached detour map NR 21-104-A.

Traffic will be controlled with construction barricades, traffic barrels and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds. Areas adjacent to the Interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.
