Traffic Interruptions on Hwy. 96 planned for Saturday morning, March 4
Traffic on Hwy. 96 between Hwy. 22 and Hwy. 10 in Greenwood will experience temporary interruptions in 15 minute periods on Saturday, March 4 between 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and again from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. These traffic interruptions are necessary to ensure public safety for motorists while 1st Battalion, 142nd Field Artillery are scheduled to fire training rockets from their Multiple Launch Rocket Systems.
Fort Chaffee Public Safety Officers and Sebastian County Sheriff’s Dept. will man the road blocks on the North and Southbound lanes holding traffic for 15-minutes while the artillery battery completes each firing mission sequence.
The Arkansas National Guard, and specifically the 142nd Field Artillery Brigade, apologize for the inconvenience this training may create for motorists on Hwy. 96, but appreciate the patience and continued support of our local communities as we continue to train to support the needs of our state and nation.
