PULASKI COUNTY (3-20) – Construction to widen Interstate 630 requires eastbound lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, crews will reduce eastbound traffic to one open lane from east of University Avenue to Baptist Health Drive. The center and outside lanes will be closed Friday, March 22 at 8:00 p.m. to Monday, March 25 at 6:00 a.m. The closures will allow crews to place concrete for the Rock Creek bridge deck.
The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone, and drivers may consider finding alternate routes as delays may occur. Traffic will be controlled using signage and barrels. Neighborhoods adjacent to the interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.
This project (Job CA0608) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. Interstate 630 is being widened to four lanes in each direction (eight total) for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening is estimated to be complete in early 2020. More information on this $87.4 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.
