PULASKI COUNTY | June 7, 2023
Construction to widen Highway 67 to six lanes between Main Street and Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville requires a single-day closure of southbound ramp Exit 10A (N. James Street).
Weather permitting, crews will close the Highway 67 southbound exit ramp 10A (N. James Street) from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, June 9. This will allow construction crews to perform drainage work. Highway 67 southbound traffic needing to exit at N. James Street is encouraged to use Exit 11 (Vandenburg Boulevard), Exit 10B (Gregory Street), or Exit 9 (Main Street).
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. More information on this $145.2 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
