Highway 67 Southbound Exit 11 Overnight Traffic Shift Scheduled in Jacksonville

PULASKI COUNTY | July 5, 2024

Construction to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville requires shifting the Highway 67 southbound Exit 11 (Vandenberg Boulevard) off-ramp traffic onto new pavement during the hours from 8 p.m. Sunday, July 7 through 5 a.m., Monday, July 8.

Weather permitting, crews will shift traffic onto the new Highway 67 southbound Exit 11 off-ramp. Once the shift has occurred, the existing off-ramp will be closed for additional construction activities. Newly installed temporary signals will be operational for the new ramp.

Traffic will be controlled with barricades 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.
