PULASKI COUNTY (06-12) – Drainage improvements on Interstate 630 will require nighttime lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will close the outside two lanes of eastbound I-630 between John Barrow and Rodney Parham Roads to improve drainage on the eastbound shoulder and slope. Eastbound ramps within the work zone will remain open during the improvements. These closures will occur nightly from Monday, June 15 through Friday, June 19, between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds.

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 has been widened for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening was substantially complete in April 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.
