Construction on Highway 270 Requires Lane Closures

GARLAND COUNTY | May 25, 2023

Construction to widen Highway 270 (Albert Pike Road) to five lanes in Garland County requires lane closures along the highway for final road paving in Hot Springs.

Weather permitting, crews will alternately close single lanes on Highway 270 from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Expressway to Fleetwood Drive to perform paving operations. This work will occur primarily overnight from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Thursday, June 1 through Monday, July 31. One lane of traffic will remain open in each direction.

This project (Job CA0607) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 1.5 miles of Highway 270 to five lanes and bike lanes, extending generally from Fleetwood Drive to Highway 227 in Garland County. This project also includes improvements to the interchange with Hwy. 227. More information on this $22.6 million project is available at
