BENTON COUNTY (11-24) – Construction to build the new Interstate 49 (Bella Vista Bypass) interchange with Highway 71 in Bentonville requires various lane closures at the interchange.

Alternating lane closures will impact roadways connected with the interchange, including Hwy. 71/Walton Boulevard, Bella Vista Bypass, and I-49 ramps during overnight hours Monday, November 29 through Friday, December 10. 

  • Sunday – Thursday nights | 8 p.m. – 6 a.m.
