Surface repairs on Interstate 49 in Benton County will require lane closures next week, officials say.

Crews will repair the interstate just north of Exit 88, at Arkansas 72, to Exit 93, at U.S. 71B, which will reduce traffic to one lane, the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said in a statement.

The closures will run between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, highway officials said.
