There is highway work and sidewalk construction work going on in the Texarkana area that may slow you down getting to school or work in the mornings.

Road work continues on Interstate 30 in the eastbound and westbound lanes, of course, weather permitting. The roadway will still have those awful concrete barriers. The work is going on 30 eastbound towards Litte Rock or westbound to Dallas from 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.

Construction Worker

If you travel on Summerhill Road in Texarkana south of the interstate lookout for sidewalk construction..The work is going on between Kennedy Lane north to Meadow Lane which is just before you go over the interstate on Summerhill Road.

There is also some road construction happening on State Highway 98 and Anderson lane in the New Boston area. 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 the area where the new bridge is being installed so folks in the Douglasville and Maud area need to be aware of possible delays.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
