Construction Requires Overnight Lane Closures on Highway 67 in Jacksonville
PULASKI COUNTY | June 30, 2023
The construction project to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville will require periodic nighttime lane closures over the next few months.
Weather permitting, crews will alternately close the northbound and southbound outside lanes of Highway 67 between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard to patch existing pavement, work on the median retaining wall, and perform median paving operations.
Single lanes will be closed overnight as needed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Saturday, July 1 through Saturday, September 30. One lane of traffic will be open in each direction during the work. No main lane interstate closures are scheduled during the 4th of July (5 a.m. on Monday, July 3 through 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 5) or Labor Day (5 a.m. on Friday, September 1 through 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 5) holidays.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels 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 CA0604) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 2.5 miles of Highway 67 to six lanes, between Main Street (Exit 9) and Vandenberg Boulevard (Exit 11) in Jacksonville.
