New detours at Big Rock Interchange

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK - The latest project at the Big Rock Interchange construction site will force new lane closures and detours for more than a year, starting this weekend.

Eastbound traffic on Financial Centre Parkway and Interstate 630 will be shifted onto new pavement so crews can build new columns for a future bridge over Shackleford Road.

It will also require the following traffic changes:

Beginning Saturday, August 10 at 6:00 a.m., drivers northbound on Shackleford Road will be restricted to one travel lane through the Financial Centre Parkway intersection and traffic will no longer be allowed to turn left and proceed west on Financial Centre Parkway. A detour will be provided on Hermitage Road.

Beginning Sunday, August 11 at 6:00 a.m., drivers eastbound on Financial Centre Parkway will no longer be allowed to turn left and proceed north on Shackleford Road. A detour will be provided on Hermitage Road.

This means the only left turn allowed at the intersection will be for drivers southbound on Shackleford Road wanting to turn left and proceed east on Interstate 630.

These detours will remain in place until the construction of the Interstate 630/Financial Centre Parkway bridge over Shackleford Road is complete in 12 to 18 months.
