Construction Requires Overnight Frontage Road Closure at South Street in Benton
SALINE COUNTY | May 1, 2023
Construction on the Interstate 30 frontage road (on the north side of the interstate) requires an overnight closure at the South Street roundabout in Benton.
Weather permitting, crews will close the frontage road roundabout during overnight hours Wednesday, May 3 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. During this closure, crews will restripe pavement within the roundabout. Local traffic may use alternate adjacent roads to navigate around the closure.
Traffic will be controlled with 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.
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.
