STREET CLOSURE: Work continuing on MLK Expressway

Nighttime motorists will need to use caution when traveling the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Expressway, between Central Avenue and Airport Road, next week as road construction continues nightly from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Friday.

The project is being completed by the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ArDOT), and is anticipated to take 60-90 days (weather permitting) starting around June 7. Work includes milling, repaving, drainage and bridge work on the approximately three-mile span of highway. 

Crews will be working in various areas simultaneously, and traffic will be reduced to one lane. Signs will be posted to direct traffic.
