Cleveland County roadwork to require lane closure


Improvements to Highway 35 will require lane closures in Cleveland County Monday, Aug. 18, through Thursday, Aug. 21, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Weather permitting, crews will be resurfacing Highway 35 north of Rison, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department said.

The work will extend south on Highway 35 from the Grant County Line to Highway 79 in Rison, reducing traffic to one lane. Traffic will be controlled using flaggers and warning signs.

Crews will be applying Bituminous Surface Treatment (Liquid Asphalt and Crushed Stone) to seal cracks and provide a durable wearing surface utilizing local materials. It usually takes from four to eight days from the time the material is placed until the loose material is swept off the roadway.

Motorists are urged to use caution when traveling on a highway that is undergoing this treatment because the crushed stone can cause glass breakage if kicked up by a vehicle traveling too fast for conditions.
