Construction of the U.S. Highway 70 Arkansas River (Broadway) Bridge and its approaches requires a section of State Highway 100 in North Little Rock to be closed, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.
State Highway 100 (Riverfront Drive) will be closed (both directions) between Karrott Street and Willow Street from 6:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 22.
Motorists traveling Riverfront Drive can use both Karrott and Willow Streets to access West Broadway Street to get around the closed section of highway. Alternate routes for the Broadway Bridge replacement project can be found on the Department’s travel and construction information web site www.idrivearkansas.com.
The AHTD would like to remind the public to maintain a safe distance from the construction area while viewing progress and taking photographs. Large trucks hauling debris as well as demolition heavy equipment are moving through the downtown area and pedestrians should be aware of their surroundings at all times.
