Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires two traffic shifts onto newly constructed pavement in the median.

Weather permitting, I-30 traffic between the Saline River Bridge and the Highway 67 interchange (Exit 114) will be shifted in stages onto the new pavement in mid-September. This work was scheduled for September 9-12, but it has been postponed to a future date. Another news release will be published once the dates are determined. No ramp access will be impacted by the traffic shift.

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.
