Roadwork to require I-530 lane closure at White Hall

Improvements to an on-ramp will require a lane closure on Interstate 530 in White Hall, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department officials.

Crews will be making concrete repairs and improving drainage on the southbound on-ramp at exit 34 in White Hall. The on-ramp will remain open, but the work will require the southbound outside lane of I-530 to be closed at the exit 34 overpass. This will allow drivers entering I-530 to accelerate to adequate speed after clearing the construction area.

The closure will begin at 7 a.m. Thursday, weather permitting. The work is expected to be complete before the Labor Day weekend. Traffic will be controlled using barrels and warning signs.

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