Resurfacing a portion of U.S. Highway 71B (Walton Blvd.) in Bentonville will require temporary and overnight lane closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, crews will have alternating, overnight lane closures between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. starting on the night of Sunday, July 7 and continuing on weekdays until work is complete. The resurfacing of approximately 6 miles of Walton Blvd. between State Highway 12 North (Rainbow Curve) and Interstate 49 is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The work will also replace the asphalt sidewalks with concrete sidewalks.
Traffic will be controlled by signage and traffic barrels. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
