Work on a section of U.S. 64 in Oklahoma could affect Arkansas drivers, the Arkansas Department of Transportation said.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has narrowed traffic to a single lane for about one mile in each direction on U.S. 64 between Roland and Interstate 40, which is part of the Fort Smith metropolitan area. This will allow crews to make repairs on two eastbound bridges damaged by the historic flooding in May.
Work under a $588,000 emergency repair contract is expected to begin next week to address significant erosion and other damage the flooding caused, the Oklahoma highway agency said.
Drivers should be alert to traffic shifts and reduced speeds in the corridor, the Oklahoma department said. The project is expected to complete by late August, weather permitting.
