Improvements to a Bridge Deck on Highway 79 to Cause Alternating Lane Closures

CLEVELAND COUNTY | November 29, 2022

Alternating lane closures began this morning on Highway 79 between Saline and Rison for one mile across the Saline River Bridge.

Due to the lane closures, the maximum load width on the bridge is eight feet.

These closures will continue daily until the end of December, weather permitting, and will allow crews to conduct hydro demolition of the current bridge deck, followed by a latex-modified concrete overlay.

ARDOT reminds drivers to slow down and be cautious of people in work zones.
