I-40 Update between Conway & Little Rock...
The new bridge over 64 in Conway has new beams across the Westbound side. They should be laying the road deck soon. Traffic should be able to detour on it within a few months.
There are 2 water bridges between mile markers 130 & 132. Both of them have the supports in place & most if not all of the decking completed. One of the bridges has a paved approach with the base of the concrete divider. They started adding the upright part of the concrete divider around mile marker 130 yesterday.
Per the AHTD info after our new tax passed last year, we should see more construction start on the rest of the widening in July. There are survey markers along I-40 from the end of the construction until you reach the I-430 interchange. With all the bridges expanded for 3 lanes, the actual road construction should proceed quickly...let's hope anyway since I drive it every day.
Scheduled completion is 2017-2018.
