CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - Road work on State Highway 351 will require drivers to take an alternate route on Wednesday, June 22.

The road will be closed in the Crowley's Ridge Raceway area between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., according to the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department.

Workers will be replacing a drainage culvert beneath the highway.

The closure will affect approximately 1.3 miles south of the intersection of Highways 351 and 358 and immediately south of County Road 721.

AHTD says drivers will be able to drive south as far as CR 721 from 358 and north from Jonesboro as far as the raceway.

Drivers are urged to take Craighead County Road 782 to State Highway 49 for local access to State Highway 351 south.
