Overnight Ramp Closure Scheduled for Highway 67 in Saline County
SALINE COUNTY | October 31, 2023
Construction to widen Interstate 30 (I-30) to six lanes in Saline County requires closing the Highway 67 ramp to I-30 east during overnight hours Wednesday night, November 1 through Saturday morning, November 11 in Benton.
Weather permitting, crews will close the ramp from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night for bridge work. Traffic will be unable to use the I-30 eastbound on-ramp during this closure and will need to follow the signed detours. See attached detour map NR 23-374-A. The detour is as follows:
- West on Frontage Road (north of I-30)
- West on I-30 to Exit 106 (Old Military Road)
- South on overpass toward I-30 East on-ramp
- East on I-30
Traffic will be controlled with message boards, construction barrels, barricades, 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.
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.NR 23-374-A
