Overnight Ramp Closures Planned at Interstate 30/Highway 70 in Saline County

SALINE COUNTY | November 16, 2022

Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires two ramp closures during three nights at the I-30 East/Highway 70 interchange (Exit 111).

Weather permitting, crews will close the I-30 East ramp to Hwy. 70 and the Hwy. 70 ramp to I-30 East during overnight hours beginning Friday night, November 18. Crews are performing work at the I-30 East bridge above the ramps, which will require full ramp closures on the following nights:

  • 11:59 p.m. Friday, November 18 through 6 a.m. Saturday, November 19
  • 11 p.m. Saturday, November 19 through 9 a.m. Sunday, November 20
  • 9 p.m. Sunday, November 20 through 5 a.m. Monday, November 21

I-30 East detour traffic will take Exit 114 and I-30 West to access Hwy. 70. Hwy. 70 detour traffic will take I-30 West and Exit 106 to access I-30 East. See attached detour map NR 22-294-A for additional information.

In addition, Pawnee Drive below I-30 will be closed to thru traffic.

The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds. Areas adjacent to the Interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.

This project (Job CA0601) 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. Highway 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 ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
