PULASKI COUNTY – Improvements to the Cantrell Road (Highway 10) interchange at Interstate 430 require significant closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, crews will conduct the following closures starting on Friday night, February 26th at 8:00 p.m. and continuing through Monday, March 1st at 5:00 a.m:
- All southbound lanes between Interstate 40 and Cantrell Road will be closed.
- All northbound lanes between Rodney Parham and Cantrell Road will be closed.
- AND: a. Any traffic on I-430 north of I-630 must exit at Rodney Parham interchange and be diverted to a detour leading to Cantrell Road, where traffic may reenter I-430 North.
A single lane across the Arkansas River Bridge on I-430 North will be maintained during the closure period. The following I-430 entrance ramps will REMAIN OPEN:
- Westbound Highway 10 to northbound I-430 entrance ramp
- Eastbound Highway 10 to southbound I-430 entrance ramp
These operations will allow crews to erect structural beams and install safety platforms. This single weekend closure will minimize the number of nightly lane closures required, thereby reducing the risk and exposure to the motorist as well as the construction personnel.
ARDOT encourages drivers to avoid using I-430 north of I-630 and to avoid I-430 completely where possible. Truck traffic should use I-30 and I-440. All traffic north of I-630 will be diverted at the Rodney Parham Rd. Interchange (Exit 8) onto a detour route. Truck traffic will not be permitted on the detour route and will be re-routed to I-30 and I-440.
