Road clos­ings set all week for South Goad Springs Street

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

Crews plac­ing bridge beams for the U.S. 412 North­ern By­pass will re­quire clos­ing all lanes on South Goad Springs Street for mul­ti­ple 15-minute pe­ri­ods in Ben­ton County through the end of the week, ac­cord­ing to Arkansas De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion of­fi­cials.

Con­tin­u­ing through Fri­day, work­ers will close lanes be­tween West Ap­ple Blos­som Road and Puppy Creek Road. Lanes will be closed daily from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., weather per­mit­ting. This work also will ne­ces­si­tate clos­ings on the Ra­zor­back Green­way Trail.

All ve­hi­cle traf­fic, cy­clists and pedes­tri­ans will be stopped out­side the ArDOT right-of-way un­til an all-clear di­rec­tive is given. Ad­vance warn­ing signs will be placed to no­tify traf­fic ap­proach­ing the clos­ing. Flag­gers will di­rect traf­fic.

Work as­so­ci­ated with con­struct­ing the by­pass also re­quires lane clos­ings on Arkansas 112 all week.

Be­gin­ning Mon­day, one lane of traf­fic will re­main open on Arkansas 112 be­tween Car­rie Smith Road and West Miller Road as crews lay pave­ment. The lane clos­ings will al­ter­nate be­tween the north and south lanes. Weather per­mit­ting, the lane clos­ings will oc­cur from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Fri­day.

Traf­fic will be con­trolled us­ing flag­gers, traf­fic bar­rels and warn­ing signs. Two lanes of traf­fic will be re­stored daily by 4 p.m.

Both projects are part of ArDOT’s Con­nect­ing Arkansas Pro­gram. The con­trac­tor is con­struct­ing about four miles of the four-lane by­pass, which ex­tends from In­ter­state 49 to Arkansas 112. The project is ex­pected to be com­pleted mid-2018. More in­for­ma­tion on the $100.6 mil­lion project is avail­able at Con­nect­ingArkansasPro­gram.com.
