MAUMELLE — The Arkansas highway department said there are lane closures coming on Interstates 40 and 430 in the Little Rock metropolitan area.

Crews are preparing for the next phase of a construction project to widen I-40 between Conway and North Little Rock. The work was to have been done last week but was postponed by rainy weather.

The northbound inside lane of I-430 near the I-40 interchange has been closed since Monday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

A westbound lane of I-40 has been closed from Highway 365 at Morgan to the I-40/430 interchange. The eastbound lane closure was set for Wednesday. Work will alternate between inside and outside lanes, with one lane always open in each direction.
