Every weekend we get tweets, Facebook messages or phone calls about traffic on Interstate 40 so we wanted to remind you about construction and give you some alternate routes.
Right now there is construction on I-40 between mile markers 194 and 205. One lane closed in each direction. According to the Highway Department's website the estimated completion date is late next year.
Here are some alternate routes for you. From I-40 East take exit 183 or 193 to Highway 70 then travel east to Brinkley.
If you're traveling on I-40 West take exit 221 or 216 to Highway 70 then head west to Hazen or Carlisle.
