Road construction on I-30 in Saline County to cause traffic shift

Published

on

Saline County, Arkansas – On Wednesday, July 6, construction work on the Interstate 30 eastbound frontage road in Saline County will begin.

Eastbound traffic on the frontage road will shift north of its current alignment as part of an effort to widen I-30 to six lanes, according to the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

Weather permitting, construction between Exit 116 and Airlane Drive will be shifted onto the existing interstate pavement and separated from interstate traffic by a barrier wall.

According to ARDOT, the temporary traffic switch will allow construction to continue realigning the frontage road between South Street and Airlane Dr and is expected to remain in place for several months.

The traffic shift will begin between 9 a.m. on July 6 and 5 a.m. on July 7 with areas adjacent to the interstate to experience possible noise impacts during nighttime hours.

This construction is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of I-30 to three lanes in each direction from the interchange with U.S. Highway 70 at Exit 111 to Sevier Street in Benton at Exit 116. The project also includes improvements at the Highway 67 interchange at Exit 114.
