By the time the end of 2023 comes around, Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department members expect Little Rock to have a 10-lane highway passing through its downtown.
“It’s definitely going to go,” says Danny Straessle, assistant public information officer at the department.
The projected 7.4-mile stretch of highway will start at the southern terminal, where Interstate 30, Interstate 530 and Interstate 440 meet. From there, it will go through the Interstate 630 interchange and over the Interstate 30 bridge before ending where Interstate 40 meets U.S. 67.
