MARION, AR - Motorists on U.S. 64 in northeast Arkansas take heed, construction crews plan to shut down lanes near the Interstate-55 overpass at Marion starting this morning.

The Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department says that the U.S. 64 lanes under the I-55 overpass will be shut down from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. every day starting today.  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.
