Traffic Switch on I-30 Frontage Road at South and Sevier Streets in Benton
SALINE COUNTY | February 6, 2023
A new traffic pattern is in place on the Interstate 30 Frontage Road roundabout at the intersection with the South Street bridge and Sevier Street (on the north side of the Interstate) in Benton.
Crews moved eastbound Frontage Road traffic into the new roundabout during overnight hours, Saturday, February 4. Upon entering the roundabout, traffic now takes the first exit to access Sevier Street or the South Street bridge. See attached map 23-018-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.

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.
