Arkansas River Flooding Prompts Shutdown of State Highway 23 Crossing at Ozark

At approximately 8:30 p.m. local time, ARDOT crews will be on scene to monitor rising water levels, eventually closing the bridge to through traffic this evening. There is no detour. At this time State Highway 23 is already down to one lane due to high water.

The nearest Arkansas River crossings from Ozark include the State Highway 59 Bridge at Barling and the State Highway 109 Bridge at Morrison Bluff. ARDOT crews continue to monitor highways throughout the Arkansas River basin for potential closures due to high water.
