Work on an $87.4 million project to widen a section of Interstate 630 in west Little Rock will require closing a lane all weekend, the Arkansas Department of Transportation said.
The eastbound outside lane near the ramp from Baptist Health Drive to I-630 will be closed starting at 8 p.m. today and continuing until 6 a.m. Monday.
In addition, the eastbound on-ramp at the location will be closed periodically for 15-minute increments to allow new pavement to be put down. Allowances will be made for emergency vehicles needing to access the on-ramp, the department said.
Traffic will be controlled using signs and barrels. Delays may occur, according to the department, which suggested motorists consider other routes.
The work is part of a project to widen a 2.2-mile section of I-630 between South University Avenue and Baptist Health Drive to eight lanes from six. The project is estimated to be complete in early 2020.
