Demolishing and reconstructing the 6th Street bridge over Interstate 30 in Little Rock will require significant traffic pattern changes and closures along the Interstate 30 corridor next week.

After 8 p.m. on Monday, April 4, the newly reconstructed 9th Street bridge over I-30 will open to traffic, followed that same evening by a long-term closure of the 6th Street bridge for reconstruction over the interstate. As part of the maintenance of traffic plan to demolish the 6th Street bridge, crews will temporarily close all lanes of traffic on I-30 Friday night, April 8, at 10 p.m. through Monday morning, April 11 at 5 a.m., from Exit 140 to Exit 140B. Traffic will utilize the frontage roads between 6th Street and Interstate 630.

Detour routes will be signed for the 6th Street bridge closure, which is expected to remain closed into early 2023. In general, eastbound 6th Street traffic will head south and use the 9th Street bridge to reach the street grid east of I-30. Westbound traffic will primarily move north and use 3rd Street to access city streets west of I-30. See detour map NR 22-060-A for additional details.

For the weekend closure of I-30, eastbound interstate traffic will take the Downtown Little Rock ramp (Exit 140) to the frontage road and will use the on-ramp at 6th Street to return to I-30. Westbound traffic will take the 6th Street ramp (Exit 140B) to the frontage road and will use the on-ramp south of 9th Street to return to I-30. See detour map NR 22-060-B for additional details. During this weekend closure, the I-630 eastbound exit ramp to I-30 eastbound will also be closed and traffic will detour to the frontage road.
