Construction work on I-49 in Ben­tonville and Rogers re­quires night­time lane clos­ings.

Crews will be per­form­ing as­phalt mill and in­lay op­er­a­tions on I-49 be­gin­ning tonight. North­bound and south­bound lanes will al­ter­nately be closed between U.S. 62/ Arkansas 102, Exit 86, and Cen­tral Av­enue/Arkansas 72, Exit 88. The clos­ings will oc­cur between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. from to­day through Oct. 31, weather per­mit­ting.

Construction work as­so­ci­ated with widen­ing I-49 also will re­quire lane clos­ings on U.S. 62/Arkansas 102 in Ben­tonville.

East­bound and west­bound lanes of U.S. 62/Arkansas 102 will al­ter­nately be closed between Phyl­lis Street and South­east Ea­gle Way to al­low for pave­ment and over­pass construction be­gin­ning tonight. One lane of traf­fic will re­main open in each di­rec­tion dur­ing the clo­sures.

The projects are widen­ing more than three miles of I-49 to three lanes in each di­rec­tion. Construction is ex­pected to be com­plete later this year.

Work as­so­ci­ated with con­struct­ing the U.S. 412 North­ern By­pass re­quires lane clo­sures on Arkansas 112.

Crews will con­tinue pave­ment strip­ing and guard rail work from to­day through Oct. 31, weather per­mit­ting. One lane of traf­fic will re­main open on Arkansas 112 between Car­rie Smith Road and West Miller Road from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

All three projects are part of the depart­ment’s Con­nect­ing Arkansas Pro­gram.
