I-30E On-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive in North Little Rock

to be Permanently Closed

PULASKI COUNTY | June 14, 2022

The Interstate 30 eastbound on-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive in North Little Rock will permanently close in late June as part of the interstate and ramp construction work at the I-30/I-40 interchange.

The current on-ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive does not meet current design standards and does not allow for the safe movement of ramp traffic to access I-40 westbound. This closure will allow crews to continue constructing a new I-30 eastbound to I-40 eastbound flyover ramp as well as a new on-ramp from the northbound frontage road to I-40 eastbound.

Traffic at Curtis Sykes Drive can access I-30 eastbound and the interchange with I-40 by taking the I-30 westbound ramp at Curtis Sykes Drive, using the Exit 141B ramp to Bishop Lindsey Avenue, and returning to I-30 eastbound. Depending on location, traffic can also use North Hills Boulevard and North Main Street to access I-40.

Additional information, including a specific closure date, will be available before the new traffic pattern begins. See map NR 22-133-A.

A long-term and permanent travel impact interactive map is available at 30Crossing.com, along with additional project information.

Long-Term Traffic Shift on I-30 Eastbound in Little Rock

PULASKI COUNTY (10-14) – Construction on Interstate 30 in Little Rock requires a major traffic shift for the next stage of improvements, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, the I-30 eastbound lanes will shift left between 9th and 6th Streets. The eastbound inside lane will have concrete barriers on either side, separating it from westbound traffic and the eastbound middle lane. This change in traffic patterns will not impact any entrance or exit ramps along I-30.

This traffic split is expected to occur the beginning of November and be in place through summer 2022. This traffic pattern is similar to the traffic shifts used during current construction on the I-430 river bridge. See traffic shift map NR 21-342-A for an illustration.

30 Crossing Project Requires Temporary Closure of I-40 Eastbound in North Little Rock

PULASKI COUNTY | August 2, 2022

I-40 eastbound will require a weekend full closure as part of ramp construction work at the I-30/I-40 interchange in North Little Rock.

A new ramp is being constructed in the north terminal for I-30 eastbound to I-40 eastbound traffic. The weekend closure will occur mid-August and will allow crews to hang steel girders for the new flyover ramp bridge over the I-40 eastbound lanes. Specific closure dates have not yet been announced.

I-40 eastbound thru traffic will detour to I-430 south at the I-40/430 interchange (Exit 147). Traffic will proceed south to the I-430/30 interchange and take I-30 east (Exit 129A). Traffic will continue on I-30 east to I-440 east (Exit 138A). Traffic will then return to I-40 at the I-440/40 interchange (Exit 11).

Additional information, including a specific closure date, will be released as it becomes available. See map NR 22-181-A for detour information.



Traffic will be controlled by construction barrels and signage. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.
