The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department says bridge construction will require temporary overnight closures of eastbound traffic on Interstate 40 in Lonoke.

Workers will install five steel beams for a new bridge at the site. That will require occasional closures of all eastbound traffic at the Highway 89 overpass in Lonoke.

The five closures will not last longer than 15 minutes each. The occasional overnight closures will begin on Tuesday at 11 p.m. and continue until Wednesday at 5 a.m., weather permitting.

Transportation officials say motorists should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel related information can be found at ArkansasHighways.com.
