Drivers in north Fayetteville can expect overnight closures of Van Asche Drive this week between North Gregg Avenue and Highway 112.

Crews are scheduled to begin demolition of the north and southbound lanes of the Interstate 49 bridge that crosses over Van Asche Drive on Tuesday, June 13. The work will occur between 7 p.m. and 6:30 a.m., and should last through Friday, June 16, according to a news release. The road will be open during the day, and then close again each night through Friday.

The work is part of a larger project to widen I-49 from four lanes to six lanes from Fayetteville to Bentonville.
