HOT SPRING COUNTY (8-14) – Demolition and construction work on Highway 84 between Social Hill and Malvern requires a temporary closure, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.
Weather permitting, crews will perform demolition and construction work as they replace a bridge. Beginning Monday, August 17 at 6:00 a.m., they will place a temporary closure around the bridge on Highway 84. If approaching from the north, the bridge is about two and a half miles south of the exit for Highways 84 and 171 via I-30 (Exit 97). If approaching from the south, this bridge is about three miles north of the Social Hill exit via I-30 (Exit 91). This work, and the closure, is expected to last for several weeks.
Traffic will be controlled with construction barrels, barricades, and signage. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
