Bentonville... Construction to build a new Bella Vista Bypass interchange with U.S. Highway 71 in Bentonville requires overnight lane closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, lanes on Interstate 49 and State Highway 549 (Bella Vista Bypass) will be closed during overnight hours from Monday night, November 4 through Saturday morning, November 9, from 8:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Crews will be setting barrier wall within the construction work zone.
Northbound I-49 will close the outside lane north of the bridges over Slaughter Pen Road to State Highway 549 (Exit 93).
- Eastbound and Westbound State Highway 549 will alternately close the outside lanes from the roundabout to the bridges over Peach Orchard Road.
Interstate traffic will be controlled with construction barrels and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone.
This project (Job CA0903) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes constructing approximately 2.8 miles of two-lane roadway with bridge structures on U.S. Highway 549, including a new Bella Vista Bypass interchange with U.S. Highway 71 in Bentonville. More information on this $66.6 million project is available at ConnectingArkansasProgram.com.
