CRITTENDEN COUNTY, ARKANSAS, Ark — A routine inspection of the I-55 Mississippi River Bridge means temporary lane closures, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting; crews will put the following lane closures into place:

  • Wed. 8/11 – Thu. 8/19 | 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. | Outside SB Lane
  • Wed. 8/18 – Thu. 8/26 | 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. | Outside NB Lane

This inspection was scheduled prior to the I-40 Mississippi River Bridge closure but could not be completed while all traffic was diverted through the I-55 Mississippi River crossing.

Orange cones, signage, and Highway Police Officers will control traffic. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @IDriveArkansas for traffic and @myARDOT for everything else.
