LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department says rock blasting operations will begin later this week on the west side of Peach Orchard Road in Benton County.

The work begins Thursday and is part of the Bella Vista Bypass construction work.

Officials say the blasting will occur several times a week for about the next month, weather permitting.

The blasting will occur about 2,000 feet west of Peach Orchard Road and motorists are being advised to watch for warning signs and safety workers during the operation.
