Interstate 30 eastbound traffic in Little Rock moving to new bridge Friday



Little Rock, Arkansas – On Friday, the Arkansas Department of Transportation’s 30 Crossing project will reach a milestone, a day ahead of schedule.

According to ARDOT, it would begin moving eastbound Interstate 30 traffic through Little Rock to the new Arkansas River Bridge on Friday, weather permitting. Originally, the eastbound change-over had been scheduled for Saturday.

In the Saturday changeover announcement, it had stated the change would take place at night.
The first phase, moving onramp traffic to the new bridge took place on Sept. 1. The third and final phase, adding westbound I-30 traffic to the bridge remains scheduled for Sept. 17.

After the third phase is accomplished, a tear-down of the old bridge, built in the mid-1950s, will begin.

According to ARDOT, motorists should be aware of lane closures during the 30 Crossing project.
