Construction on U.S. Highway 82 in Ashley County Requires a Traffic Shift


 Construction to widen U.S. Highway 82 south of Hamburg in Ashley County requires a traffic shift, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

Northbound and southbound lanes on Highway 82 will shift to newly constructed pavement between County Road 22 and State Highway 52. Weather permitting, this traffic shift will occur Saturday. 

Flagging operations, pavement lines and traffic barrels will control traffic. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone.

This project (Job CA0202) is part of ARDOT’s Connecting Arkansas Program and includes widening 5.5 miles of U.S. Highway 82 to four lanes with a center paved median, from the intersection with U.S. Highway 425 to Hamburg. More information on this $26.7 million project is available at

Drivers should exercise caution when approaching and traveling through all highway work zones. Additional travel information can be found at or
