I-630 construction means periodic lane closures

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas highway officials say construction on Interstate 630 will result in periodic lane closures this weekend.

The State Highway and Transportation Department says crews will be striping the westbound pavement within the Big Rock interchange.

Highway officials say the work will require westbound traffic in the area to be reduced to one lane periodically. The I-430 northbound to I-630 westbound loop also will be closed in 15 minute intervals.

The periodic closures will begin Sunday at 6:30 a.m. and continue through the day.
