GARLAND AND SALINE COUNTIES (6-7) – Asphalt work on U.S. Highway 70 requires lane closures in Garland and Saline counties, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, eastbound lanes on U.S. Highway 70 will alternately be closed daily from Monday, June 10 through Saturday, June 15, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Eastbound lanes in multiple areas will be closed within a work zone beginning approximately 1.5 miles west of the Highway 70 Rest Area in Garland County to a half mile west of Woodard Road in Saline County. At least one eastbound lane of traffic will remain open during the work.

Traffic will be controlled with signage and barrels, and limited lane shifts may be in effect.
