SALINE COUNTY | July 1, 2022

Traffic on the Interstate 30 eastbound frontage road in Saline County will shift north of its current alignment as part of the construction project to widen I-30 to six lanes.

Weather permitting, I-30 eastbound frontage road traffic between Exit 116 and Airlane Drive will be shifted onto existing interstate pavement and separated from interstate traffic by a barrier wall. This temporary traffic switch will allow construction to continue with realigning the frontage road between South Street and Airlane Drive. The traffic shift will initiate between 9 p.m. Wednesday evening, July 6 and 5 a.m. Thursday morning, July 7. This alignment is expected to remain in place for several months.

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.
