The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) reminds drivers to “know before you go” and visit IDriveArkansas.com before traveling during the Memorial Day Holiday (May 22-25.)


Work zones will include Interstate 530 in Pine Bluff. Mile markers 35-45 will have one lane closed in both directions for 24 hours, according to the news release.


ARDOT has been working to open as many lanes as possible in the state, but travelers will likely face work zones and possible delays due to increased traffic volume. Traffic will be controlled by traffic cones and signage. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.


The Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) recommends staying home as much as possible during the coronavirus pandemic, but if people choose to travel, there are several things to consider first, according to the release. (For details, visit the CDC’s webpage on Travel in the U.S.)
