Improvements to Red Wolf Boulevard Mean Lane Closures in Jonesboro


CRAIGHEAD COUNTY (11-18) – Construction work to improve Red Wolf Blvd. (Highway 49) means there will be lane closures in Jonesboro, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) officials.

Weather permitting, crews will alternatingly close a single lane on Red Wolf Blvd. between the intersections of Interstate 555 and Highland Dr starting at 3:00 a.m. on Friday morning, November 20, and continuing Monday-Saturday until the work is complete. The asphalt work is estimated to take three weeks.

This work is part of a project to resurface approximately one mile of Highway 49 (Job 101019) between Highway 18 and I-555, a $438,594.12 contract awarded to Atlas Asphalt Inc. in May of 2020.

Traffic will be controlled by traffic cones and signage. Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at IDriveArkansas.com or ARDOT.gov. You can also follow us on Twitter @myARDOT.
