Parrish Street Closure Scheduled in Jacksonville

PULASKI COUNTY | February 8, 2024

Construction to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville requires the closure of Parrish Street at John Harden Drive (next to Walmart) from Monday, February 12 through Friday, May 31.

This closure will allow construction crews to perform paving operations and retaining wall work. Parrish Street at John Harden Drive is used as a side entrance to the Walmart parking lot. No detour is required since access to Walmart will be maintained from John Harden Drive.

Traffic will be controlled with barricades and signs. 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.
