Construction work to widen Interstate 630 in Little Rock will require lane closures beginning Monday, according to a news release from the Arkansas Department of Transportation.
The closures will affect inside lanes eastbound and westbound on I-630 between University Avenue (Exit 5) and Baptist Health Drive (Exit 7).
Work will occur weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday; Dec. 27; Dec. 30 and Jan. 3.
The closures will allow crews to work within the median. Traffic will be controlled using barrels and signs, the release said.
Neighborhoods adjacent to the interstate may experience noise during nighttime hours.
The project is part of the Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-percent sales tax.
Interstate 630 is being widened to four lanes in each direction for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening is estimated to be complete early next year.
