Lane clo­sures needed for widen­ing project

The Saline Courier - - FRONT PAGE - Spe­cial to The Sa­line Courier

Un­til Nov. 2, overnight lane clo­sures are needed for a con­struc­tion project to widen In­ter­state 30 to six lanes in Sa­line County, ac­cord­ing to Arkansas Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion of­fi­cials.

Weather per­mit­ting, east­bound and west­bound lanes on In­ter­state 30 will al­ter­nately be closed in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions within the project’s work zone, west of the in­ter­change with U.S. High­way 70 to east of Se­vier Street in Ben­ton. De­pend­ing on lo­ca­tion, an in­side or out­side lane will be closed to al­low crews to place as­phalt, tem­po­rary strip­ing and bar­rier wall, fol­lowed by lane shifts. This work will take place dur­ing overnight hours.

•East­bound lanes will be re­duced to one open lane be­tween 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

•West­bound lanes will be re­duced to one open lane be­tween 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Traf­fic will be con­trolled with con­struc­tion bar­rels and sig­nage. The pub­lic is ad­vised to be cau­tious when trav­el­ing in the work zone. Ar­eas ad­ja­cent to the in­ter­state may ex­pe­ri­ence noise im­pacts dur­ing night­time hours.

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

More in­for­ma­tion on this $187.3 mil­lion project is avail­able at Con­nect­ing arkansas pro­gram. com.
