LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Construction will require a weekend lane closure at the Interstate 430/630 “Big Rock” interchange in Little Rock, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

Crews will be hanging overhead sign structures. This will require the closure of the northbound I-430 outside lane between Shackleford Road (Exit 5) and Kanis Road. All northbound traffic will be placed in the inside lane as the work is being performed. This means only one lane will be available at this location.

The closure will be Saturday, Aug. 17 through Sunday, Aug. 18 between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m., weather permitting. Traffic will be controlled using barrels and warning signs. 

Here’s what drivers should know:

As northbound I-430 drivers approach the Shackleford Road exit (Exit 5), they will be required to transition from three lanes to one lane.

Drivers exiting northbound I-430 to Shackleford Road should be minimally impacted.

Drivers entering northbound I-430 from the Shackleford Road will be placed in a yield condition prior to entering northbound I-430.

Drivers exiting northbound I-430 to eastbound I-630 must use caution when exiting. Drivers will have to quickly move to the right to exit due to the location of the installation work.

For all drivers on I-430 northbound, traffic will be stopped periodically for 15 minutes as the structures are being placed into location.

Motorists should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at ArkansasHighways.com.
