Painting to require lane closure on Interstate 430

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - State highway officials say inside lanes on Interstate 430 at the Big Rock Exchange in Little Rock will be closed in the overnight hours next week so crews can paint bridges.

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department says the northbound and southbound inside lanes on I-430 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., beginning Sunday night. The work is expected to wrap up by Friday morning.

The highway department says the lanes will be closed as crews paint steel girders on the bridges.

Drivers are asked to exercise caution as they go through the work zone.
