Construction requires lane closures on Hwy 270

GARLAND COUNTY — Construction to widen Highway 270 to five lanes in Garland County requires lane closures on the highway.

Weather permitting, crews will be working on Highway 270 between Geode Place and Ledgerock Road in Garland County. Rolling lane closures will periodically be utilized through December 2021. Depending on the location, an eastbound or westbound lane will be closed to allow crews to work. Under lane closure conditions, traffic may be reduced to one open lane during daytime hours between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Traffic will be controlled with flaggers, barrels, and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and to watch for slower traffic speeds.

This project (Job CA0607) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 1.5 miles of Highway 270 to five lanes and bike lanes, extending generally from Fleetwood Drive to Highway 227 in Garland County. This project also includes improvements to the interchange with Highway 227. More information on this $22.6 million project is available at

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at or You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT
