Lane Closure Jan. 27 on I-40/55 in West Memphis

Road work will affect traffic on I-40 eastbound/I-55 southbound.
LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) Improvements to Interstate 40/55 will require lane closures in West Memphis, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

Crews are preparing to reconstruct Interstate 40/55 between the Interstate 40/55 interchange in northern West Memphis and Highway 131 (Mound City Road). This will reduce I-40 eastbound traffic by one lane. Note: I-40 and I-55 share the same lanes through this area. Therefore, I-55 will be affected as well.

The initial lane closures will begin Monday, Jan. 27, weather permitting. The closures will only affect traffic on I-40 eastbound/I-55 southbound. Traffic will initially be controlled using barrels and warning signs.

Last December, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department awarded the $32.1 million dollar contract to Koss Construction of Topeka, Kansas. It includes Interstate reconstruction and rehabilitation of six bridges on Interstate 40/55 in West Memphis. The entire project is estimated to be complete in the summer of 2015. This project is part of the Interstate Rehabilitation Program, which was approved by voters in 2011.

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