Work on U.S. 65, also known as the Martha Mitchell Expressway, will require lane closures Wednesday in Pine Bluff, state highway officials said.
Crews installing mast arms for a new traffic signal at U.S. 65 and University Avenue will require intermittent closures of the north- and southbound lanes of U.S. 65, the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said in a statement. Traffic will be stopped for only up to 15 minutes at a time, the department said.
The closures will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, weather permitting, the department said.
Crews will deploy barrels and warning signs to alert drivers.
