Flagging Operations Scheduled on Pawnee Drive in Saline County

SALINE COUNTY | September 22, 2023

Construction to widen Interstate 30 to six lanes in Saline County requires flagging operations on Pawnee Drive under the I-30 overpass Monday, September 25 through Friday, September 29 in Saline County.

Weather permitting, crews will close one lane of Pawnee Drive under the I-30 overpass and have flagging operations in place. This closure will allow for continued bridge construction in the area. 

If the work requires a short-term full closure of Pawnee Drive rather than the use of flagging operations, it will occur during the following time periods.

  • 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Traffic will be controlled with message boards, construction barrels, barricades, signage, and flagging operations. 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.
