Overnight Closure of Highway 70 Ramp to Interstate 30 Eastbound in Saline County

SALINE COUNTY | June 13, 2024

The Highway 70 ramp to Interstate 30 (I-30) eastbound will be closed during overnight hours from 9 p.m. Thursday, June 13 through 5 a.m. Friday, June 14 in Saline County.

Weather permitting, the Highway 70 ramp to I-30 eastbound will be closed overnight to allow crews to repair pipe crossings. Signed detours will be in place to navigate around the ramp closures. The detour is as follows:

  • Highway 70 ramp to I-30 eastbound. Exiting traffic will detour to I-30 westbound, take Exit 106, and return to I-30 eastbound.

See detour map NR 24-185-A for more information.

Accommodations will be made to allow emergency vehicles to access closed ramps.

Traffic will be controlled with message boards, construction barrels, barricades, 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 CA0601) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of Interstate 30 to three lanes in each direction, from the interchange with U.S. Highway 70 (Exit 111) to Sevier Street in Benton (Exit 116). The project also includes improvements at the Highway 67 interchange (Exit 114). More information on this $187.3 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
