Little Rock Lane Closures

Maintenance work on I-40 will require lane closures in North Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

Weather permitting, the outside lanes of I-40 will be closed nightly from I-30 (North Terminal Interchange) to Springdale Road (Exit 156) in North Little Rock. These closures will occur nightly from 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. between Sunday night, August 12 and Thursday morning, August 16.

Meanwhile, construction to widen Interstate 630 also requires overnight lane closures in Little Rock.

Weather permitting, crews will reduce I-630 traffic to one open lane in each direction during overnight hours between Baptist Hospital Drive (Exit 7) and University Avenue (Exit 5). Eastbound and westbound center and outside lanes will be closed during the following hours to conduct the work.

  • Sunday night, August 12, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
  • Monday, August 13 to Thursday, August 16 from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., nightly
  • Friday, August 17, from 9:00 p.m. to Saturday, August 18, midnight

Traffic will be controlled using signage and barrels. During daytime travel peak hours, all six lanes on I-630 will be open to traffic. Neighborhoods adjacent to the interstate will experience noise impacts during nighttime hours. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zones.

In addition, crews will be removing overhead sign structures within the work zone, which will require all lanes of traffic to be stopped on I-630 for 15-minute intervals. Weather permitting, this work will occur between 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., beginning Monday night, August 13 and continuing through Friday, August 17.

This project (Job CA0608) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. Interstate 630 is being widened to four lanes in each direction (eight total) for 2.2 miles between the Big Rock Interchange and University Avenue. The widening is estimated to be complete in early 2020. More information on this $87.4 million project is available at
