PULASKI COUNTY (6-3) – Construction to widen Interstate 630 requires overnight lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, eastbound and westbound lanes on I-630 will alternately be closed Wednesday night, June 5 and Thursday night, June 6, from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m to allow crews to apply textured finishes to the Hughes Street Bridge. If inclement weather affects the work, lane closures may also be required Friday night, June 7.
The inside and middle lanes of eastbound I-630 will be closed first between Baptist Hospital Drive and University Avenue. Once complete, the contractor will then switch to the westbound direction, closing the inside and middle lanes.
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.
