30 Crossing Project Requires Significant Closures to
Interstate 30 and the 6th Street Bridge in Little Rock

PULASKI COUNTY | March 25, 2022

Demolishing and reconstructing the 6th Street bridge over Interstate 30 in Little Rock will require significant traffic pattern changes and closures along the Interstate 30 corridor in early April.

The newly reconstructed 9th Street bridge over I-30 will open to traffic, followed by a long-term closure of the 6th Street bridge for reconstruction over the interstate. As part of the maintenance of traffic plan to demolish the 6th Street bridge, crews will temporarily close all lanes of traffic on I-30 for a weekend in April, with traffic utilizing the frontage roads between 6th Street and Interstate 630. Specific dates for these travel impacts will be announced closer to the work in April.

Detour routes will be signed for the 6th Street bridge closure, which is expected to remain closed into early 2023. In general, eastbound 6th Street traffic will head south and use the 9th Street bridge to reach the street grid east of I-30. Westbound traffic will primarily move north and use 3rd Street to access city streets west of I-30. See detour map NR 22-060-A for additional details.

For the weekend closure of I-30, eastbound interstate traffic will take the Downtown Little Rock ramp (Exit 140) to the frontage road and will use the on-ramp at 6th Street to return to I-30. Westbound traffic will take the 6th Street ramp (Exit 140B) to the frontage road and will use the on-ramp south of 9th Street to return to I-30. See detour map NR 22-060-B for additional details. During this weekend closure, the I-630 eastbound exit ramp to I-30 eastbound will also be closed and traffic will detour to the frontage road.

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.

Construction on Interstate 430 to Cause
Delays Over the Weekend

PULASKI COUNTY | May 13, 2022

Improvements to Interstate 430 between Maumelle Boulevard (Highway 100) and Cantrell Road (Highway 10) could cause temporary delays this weekend.

Weather permitting, crews will begin work on the I-430 northbound exit ramp to Maumelle Blvd. beginning Friday night, May 13, at 8 p.m. through 6 a.m. Monday morning, May 16. The ramp will remain open to traffic and at least one lane will remain open at all times, but there may be delays within the work zone.

ARDOT reminds drivers to slow down and minimize distractions when moving through a work zone. Using a phone in a work zone is unlawful and can result in citations and doubled fines.
