Roadwork to require lane closures

Improvements to U.S. 270 will require alternating lane closures beginning Tuesday in Jefferson County, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department officials.

The work will begin at the U.S 270 and Interstate 530 intersection in White Hall. It will progress west to near Sandy Acres Drive.

The alternating lane closures will be 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays through Monday, June 3, weather permitting. Traffic will be controlled by warning signs and flaggers. Drivers should expect short delays and consider an alternate route.
