Weekend closure on I-40 interchange in North Little Rock



Little Rock, Arkansas – A portion of Interstate 40 in North Little Rock will be closed to all traffic from Friday evening to Monday morning.

The eastbound lane of I-40 will be closed from 10 p.m. on Friday until 5 a.m. on Monday as part of ramp construction work at the I-30/I-40 interchange, according to the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

Weather permitting, ArDOT said the I-40 eastbound lane will be closed with the north terminal and no traffic will be permitted. This time will allow crews to construct a new ramp in the north terminal for traffic traveling from I-30 eastbound to I-40 eastbound, the agency said in a news release. The weekend construction will allow crews to hang steel girders over I-40 lanes for a new flyover ramp.

Traffic will be diverted to I-430 south at the I-40/430 interchange at Exit 147. Vehicles will then proceed south to the I-430/30 interchange and take I-30 east at Exit 129A. From there, traffic will continue on I-30 east to I-440 east at Exit 138A.

Traffic returns to I-40 at the I-440/40 interchange at Exit 11.
