U.S. Highway 67 Southbound Lane Shift Onto Newly Constructed Lanes.

Construction work on U.S. Highway 67 in Pulaski and Lonoke counties requires a southbound lane shift onto newly constructed southbound lanes, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

To continue with the highway widening, southbound traffic will be moved onto newly constructed southbound lanes between Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville and State Highway 5 in Cabot. Weather permitting; this shift will occur Friday, May 11 at 7:00 p.m. to Saturday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Crews will be re-striping the newly constructed southbound lanes, on-ramp at State Highway 5, and the off-ramp at Vandenberg Boulevard (Exit 11). The inside and outside southbound lanes will alternately be closed and shifted onto new alignment during this operation. Traffic will be controlled using traffic barrels and signs. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zones.

This project (Job CA0605) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 4.6 miles of U.S. Highway 67 from Vandenberg Boulevard in Jacksonville to State Highway 5 in Cabot. The highway is being widened to three lanes in each direction. More information on this $79.2 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.

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.
