Overnight Lane Closures On Interstate 630 In Little Rock

PULASKI COUNTYConstruction to widen Interstate 630 requires overnight lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

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. Exit ramps will not be impacted during this lane-closure period.

  • Tuesday, September 4 to Thursday, September 6, 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., nightly
  • Friday, September 7, at 8:00 p.m. to Saturday, September 8, 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.

There will be no lane closures Friday night, August 31 through Tuesday morning,
September 4 for the Labor Day holiday weekend.

This project (Job CA0608) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program, which is funded through a 10-year, half-cent sales tax. More information on this $87.4 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.

Meanwhile, Utility location work requires intermittent temporary lane closures in Little Rock, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

Weather permitting, crews will begin utility location work Tuesday, September 4 for the State Highway 10 (Cantrell Road) widening project that is currently in the design phase. Drivers can expect shoulder closures along Cantrell Road, River Mountain Road, Rodney Parham Road, and Southridge Drive in the coming weeks.  Lane closures on Cantrell Road and other roadways in the project area will be limited to occur between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.  The work will not be continuous, but rather intermittent as needed to aid in the design of the project.

The utility locating will consist of excavating small holes to determine the accurate location of existing underground utility lines.  The utility line locations and elevations will be accurately surveyed and mapped for use in the final design of the project.  Expected completion of the utility location work is late March 2019.

The project, Job 061331, is the first Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) contract for the Department.  In this project delivery method, the CMGC is hired during the pre-construction/design phase to aid the Department in constructability review, risk mitigation, and cost and schedule optimization.

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
