Arkansas drivers reminded to use for holiday travel information

Arkansas News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – (6/27/19) The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) reminds drivers to “know before you go” and visit before traveling during this Independence Day Holiday.

Extensive highway improvements continue through the state. With those improvements come work zones. To aid in your holiday travel, ARDOT has been working hard to open as many lanes as possible. Still, travelers will likely face work zones and possible delays due to increased traffic volume.

Overall travel volume for the holiday is expected to rise 4.1% over last year, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA). The AAA predicts that more than 41 million Americans will travel by automobile between Wednesday, July 3 and Sunday, July 7.

To help motorists find ways around accidents and work zone backups on Interstates, ARDOT has an Alternate Routes feature on It displays linkages between the Interstate corridors and secondary routes that motorists may consider when travel is delayed. You can also follow on Twitter @myARDOT.

Below is a list of closures on Arkansas’ Primary Highway Network during the holiday weekend. Motorists are encouraged to look at to find closures that are on secondary and low traffic volume routes.
