SALINE COUNTY (6-7) – Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires a temporary ramp closure at U.S. Highway 67, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the westbound exit ramp to Haskell at U.S. Highway 67 (Exit 114) will be closed Monday night, June 10, between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Construction crews are placing temporary striping and concrete traffic barriers that require the closure. Ramp traffic can detour at Exit 116 (Sevier Street/South Street) in Benton and take the westbound frontage road to State Highway 229 to avoid the temporary closure.

If inclement weather affects the work, a ramp closure may also be required Tuesday night, June 11 and Wednesday night, June 12.

Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone. 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. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
