CABOT, Ark. — A few more lane closures coming mean the current Highway 67/167 project is almost complete. The Arkansas Department of Transportation is warning drivers that they're about to have a few lane closures Jacksonville and Cabot, but these closures are good news because they mean the 2 plus year-long project is almost complete.
The construction between Vandenberg Boulevard and the first Cabot exit is wrapping up and ARDOT is getting ready for some final temporary lane closures. Weather permitting, those lanes will go from 3 to 2 within the next week and mostly only at night.
They'll install overhead signs, do the final striping, resurface the service roads, and remove some barriers in the median.
They're hoping to have that complete in April with a goal of having the 4.6-mile long portion of the Highway 67 construction finished by summer.
Drivers will have at least a year until construction begins for the next section between Main Street and Vandenberg Blvd. That will take another few years, but once complete, Highway 67 will give drivers 3 lanes each way of newly paved roads.
The new Cabot interchange at Exit 21 is expected to open to traffic Tuesday.
