Drivers should expect detour in west Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas highway officials say drivers should expect a new detour and lane closure this weekend at the Big Rock interchange in west Little Rock.

The State Highway and Transportation Department says the northwest and southwest loops, as well as the Markham Street access ramp, will be closed as crews hang new signs above the affected lanes.

All southbound drivers on Interstate 430 wanting to go west on Financial Centre Parkway, east on Interstate 630 or to Markham Street will be detoured to the Shackleford Road overpass.

Drivers on Interstate 630 westbound wanting to go south on Interstate 430 will be directed north to the Rodney Parham overpass, where they'll cross the overpass and return south on Interstate 430.
