JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Maintenance work to improve the Harrisburg Road Bridge over Interstate 555 will require lane closures starting Monday, Oct. 30, according to the Arkansas Department of Transportation.

Starting at 7 a.m., weather permitting, crews will clean and paint the bridge. To do so, they will alternately close single lanes of traffic on I-555.

The closures will occur 24-hours a day until the project is complete, which should take about a month, according to ArDOT.

In June, the overpass sustained heavy damage after a semi-truck driven by Jackie Becker of Jonesboro hit one of the supports. Becker died in the crash.
