Blasting to close I-430 at Cantrell

Blasting operations connected to the construction of a new ramp at Interstate 430 and Cantrell Road in Little Rock will require lane closures Saturday and Sunday, the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said.

All lanes on I-430 and on Cantrell in the vicinity of the interchange will be shut down for 15-minute intervals from 6 a.m. to noon Saturday and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, weather permitting.

Traffic on both roads will be slow-rolled to a complete stop by the Arkansas Highway Police, the department said. Once the blast occurs, each highway will be swept for debris and reopened. There are no detours.

These closures on I-430 and Cantrell, also known as Arkansas 10, will allow the contractor to conduct blasting operations for the new ramp being constructed that will carry traffic from westbound Cantrell to northbound I-430 and eliminate a left turn on the busy roadway.

The blasting is part of a $22.9 million project.
