SPRINGDALE (KFSM) - Springdale traffic may be slow in the coming weeks along the Wagon Wheel Road overpass over Interstate 49, as construction crews work over the next several weeks to rehabilitate the bridge.

Crews on Thursday began closing one lane in each direction on the overpass, in a project that is expected to be completed before school starts Aug. 18, according to a statement released Friday by the City of Springdale.

Workers plan to rehabilitate the bridge deck one lane at a time while drivers use the other lane in each direction. Traffic will be guided by temporary signals during the time of the project, according to the city.

City officials are asking drivers to drive cautiously through the construction zone or to consider taking alternate routes.
