PULASKI COUNTY | March 23, 2023
The construction project to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville will require periodic nighttime lane closures over the next few months.
Weather permitting, crews will alternately close Highway 67 northbound and southbound outside lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard to patch existing pavement. Single lanes will be closed overnight, as needed, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning Sunday, March 26 through Friday, June 30. One lane of traffic will be open in each direction during the work.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage. 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 CA0604) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 2.5 miles of Highway 67 to six lanes, between Main Street (Exit 9) and Vandenberg Boulevard (Exit 11) in Jacksonville. The project also includes improvements at the James Street interchange (Exit 10A), the Gregory Street Interchange (Exit 10B), the Vandenberg Boulevard interchange (Exit 11), and conversion of the frontage roads from two-way to one-way. More information on this $145.2 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
