Work on a $187.3 million project to widen a section of Interstate 30 in Saline County will require frontage road traffic to yield to westbound vehicles exiting the interstate in Benton starting Tuesday, the Arkansas Department of Transportation said.
Frontage road traffic on the north side of Interstate 30 will be required to yield to off-ramp traffic at the South Street exit for several months, weather permitting. The frontage road will temporarily be reduced to one lane to allow construction crews to work on the South Street Bridge over I-30.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels, barricades and signs, the department said.
The work is part of a project to widen a 5.5-mile section of I-30 between Sevier Street in Benton and U.S. 70 to six lanes from four. The project also includes improvements at the I-30/U.S. 67 interchange.
