New Lane Closures, Detours for Bridge Building at Big Rock Interchange

Some Financial Centre Parkway and Shackleford Road traffic being rerouted to Hermitage Road.
LITTLE ROCK, AR (News Release) - Construction of the new Interstate 630/Financial Centre Parkway bridge over Shackleford Road will require new lane closures/detours at the Interstate 430/630 (Big Rock) Interchange beginning this weekend, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

If weather permits, eastbound traffic on Financial Centre Parkway and Interstate 630 will be shifted onto new pavement this weekend. This will allow crews to construct new columns for a future bridge over Shackleford Road.

It will also require the following traffic changes:
  • Beginning Saturday, August 10th at 6:00 a.m., drivers northbound on Shackleford Road will be restricted to one travel lane through the Financial Centre Parkway intersection and traffic will no longer be allowed to turn left and proceed west on Financial Centre Parkway. A detour will be provided on Hermitage Road.
  • Beginning Sunday, August 11th at 6:00 a.m., drivers eastbound on Financial Centre Parkway will no longer be allowed to turn left and proceed north on Shackleford Road. A detour will be provided on Hermitage Road.
  • This means the only left turn allowed at the intersection will be for drivers southbound on Shackleford Road who want to turn left and proceed east on Interstate 630. These detours will be required until the construction of the Interstate 630/Financial Centre Parkway bridge over Shackleford Road is complete in 12 to 18 months.
Motorists should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones.
