According to the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department, one lane of U.S. 70 between Saline and Garland counties will be closed today as construction crews continue with the $78.5 million widening project.

The highway is being widened to two lanes in each direction with a continuous center turn lane. The project is anticipated to be complete in late 2018. More information, visit
