Bowie County And Cass County Residents Beware, Road Construction May Affect Your Commute
People in the Texarkana area need to know about some roadwork the may make your commute a little difficult this week.
Road work continues on Interstate 30 in the eastbound and westbound lanes, there is dirt work going on in the inside lanes of Interstate 30. You also need to be aware of the construction vehicles that are entering the Interstate from the median area during this construction period.
The interstate 30 construction has those concrete barriers that make driving down the interstate a little dangerous to go on, so use the access roads. The work is going on 30 eastbound towards Litte Rock and westbound to Dallas from just west of Kings Highway in Nash all the way to the Jefferson Road exit in Texarkana, Arkansas. Please make sure to yield to those folks using the very short on-ramps that you will need to deal with if you are getting on or off the interstate.
There is also some road construction happening on State Highway 98. Anderson lane in the New Boston area is where this construction is going on. This is near the prison in New Boston will require the bridge to only be open in one lane with traffic lights controlling the flow of traffic in this area.
If your commute takes you on Highway 8 in Cass county the bridgework continues near the lake. The Malden Lake area of Lake Texarkana is where the new bridge is being installed so people that travel highway 8 north into Maud need to be aware of the possible delays associated with this bridge construction.
