LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Interstate 430 that runs north and south through the western part of this city is a heavily-traveled truck connection between Interstate 40 and Interstate 30, but on Wednesday, May 30, southbound truckers may want to avoid that highway completely.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department is the middle of a years-long project to rebuild the I-430/I-630 interchange and beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday will start work to relocate an exit for southbound I-430 traffic that will involve closing one to two lanes of southbound I-430 for 18-21 hours.

The department is encouraging all motorists to stay away from the southbound lanes of the interchange on if at all possible.

Speed limits will be reduced to 40 mph during the work Wednesday.

The alternative route involves taking I-40 into North Little Rock and connecting with I-30 there.

The $124 million interchange modification project will continue through 2014.
