SALINE COUNTY (6-18) –  Crews will use slow roll lane closures on Interstate 30 in Benton below the South Street bridge next week during overnight hours, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will be working on the South Street bridge over I-30 Monday through Thursday nights, June 21 to 24. To allow construction crews to work, the Arkansas Highway Police will use slow rolls on I-30 through the work area. In addition, traffic on the frontage roads will be stopped by flagging operations for short periods of time to facilitate the work.

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.

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 @IDriveArkansas for traffic and @myARDOT for everything else.
