PULASKI COUNTY | May 23, 2023
Construction to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville requires a northbound lane closure.
Weather permitting, crews will close the northbound outside lane of Highway 67 from Main Street to North James Street from 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 24 until 2 p.m. Thursday, May 25. This lane closure will allow construction crews to perform maintenance pavement repairs. The northbound inside lane will remain open to traffic.
Traffic will be controlled with message boards, flashing arrows, and traffic drums. 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.
