I-30 Construction in Saline County to Cause Overnight Closures on Highway 67/229
SALINE COUNTY | October 4, 2022
Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires overnight closures of Highway 67/229 below the I-30 bridge.
Weather permitting, crews will close Highway 67/229 below Interstate-30 at Haskell (Exit 114), between Pawnee Drive and the frontage road north of I-30 on the following dates:
- 11:59 p.m. Friday, October 7 through 6 a.m. Saturday, October 8
- 11 p.m. Saturday, October 8 through 9 a.m. Sunday, October 9
- 9 p.m. Sunday, October 9 through 5 a.m. Monday, October 10
I-30 traffic has recently been shifted onto the new permanent bridge over Highway 67; this closure will allow for the demolition of the existing eastbound I-30 bridge.
Highway 67/229 traffic will be unable to travel below the interstate during this closure and will need to follow the signed detours. See attached detour map 22-255-A.
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.
