I-40 Lane closure set for Monday

LITTLE ROCK - Road crews will close down one lane on Interstate 40 in Pulaski County on Monday.

Crews will be taking samples from I-40 to get ready for a widening project and modifications to the I-40/430 Interchange, according to a press release from the Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department. For worker safety, the westbound outside lane will be closed from highway 365 at Morgan to just east of the I-40/430 Interchange from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., weather permitting.

Bids for that project are scheduled for next summer.
