BENTON COUNTY (03-23) – Construction to build the 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, crews will be creating temporary traffic detours at the State Highway 549 (Bella Vista Bypass) roundabout from Thursday, March 26 through Sunday, April 5 to allow for continued construction. Crews will be closing lanes during overnight hours and flagging traffic around the work.

  • Monday – Friday nights, 8:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.
  • Saturday nights, 8:00 p.m. – 10:00 a.m.
  • Sunday nights, 6:00 p.m.- 7:00 a.m.

Traffic will be controlled by signage, flagging operations, and police enforcement. Watch for warning signs and safety personnel during the work. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone.
