MARION,AR (AP) -  Motorists on U-S-64 in northeastern Arkansas take heed, construction crews plan to shut down lanes near the Interstate 55 overpass starting tomorrow morning.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department says that the U-S 64 lanes under the I-55 overpass will be shut from nine in the morning until three in the afternoon every day starting Monday. Only one lane will be closed at a time.

Crews will be straightening a girder that was damaged earlier this year by a load passing underneath that was too tall.
