I-530 work to require lane closure in PB

Crews performing pavement repairs on Interstate 530 will require a lane closure starting next week, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department officials.

The repairs will be on the outside southbound lane of Interstate 530 from exit 41 (Old Warren Road) to exit 42 (Hazel Street). The work will not interfere with the on-ramp of Old Warren Road or the off ramp at Hazel Street, which is the entrance to Jefferson Memorial Hospital.

The closure will begin at 8 a.m., Tuesday and continue for two to three weeks, weather permitting. It will last 24 hours each day. Once the outside southbound lane is complete, work will switch to the inside southbound lane.

Motorists should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.
