Expect lane closures on I-430 in Little Rock

Expect lane closures on I-430 in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK (AHTD) – Construction work will require lane closures on Interstate 430 in Little Rock, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

Crews will be installing a precast barrier wall, hanging a temporary overhead sign on the Kanis Road overpass and restriping the lanes. The work is necessary so southbound traffic can be shifted slightly to give the contractor room to construct an extension of a 4th lane.

The work will reduce I-430 southbound traffic to one lane between the on-ramp at Hermitage Road and the on-ramp at Shackleford Road (Exit 5). Also, the I-430 southbound on-ramp at Hermitage Road will be closed. That traffic will be detoured to the Shackleford Road on-ramp.

The lane closures and detour will be Sunday, November 2nd, between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Traffic will be controlled using barrels and warning signs.

Little Rock mayor announces fourth annual Car-Free Challenge

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Little Rock) – The City of Little Rock will celebrate its annual Mayor’s Car-Free Challenge next week. Now in its fourth year, this initiative motivates citizens to give up the use of their cars for a week. The challenge begins Monday, Oct. 13 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 19.

Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola shared his personal commitment to this program.

“I am challenging myself and all of our residents to not use their cars and, instead, to use alternative means of transportation,” said Stodola. “You can ride the bus, ride a bike, walk or catch a ride with a friend.”

This goal of this seven-day challenge is to raise awareness of the many alternative transportation options available to Little Rock residents that can benefit the community.

City approves Taylor Loop gas station

City approves Taylor Loop gas station


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A controversial proposed gas station at the intersection of Taylor Loop and Highway 10 in Little Rock got the green light to move forward from the city board on Monday.

The city board took a vote on the proposed 20-pump station and approved the ordinance by a vote of 7-to-3.

THV11 spoke with Samantha Chaney before Monday's meeting, and she's been heavily involved in the effort to mobilize people in opposition of the gas station.

"We know that we tried our best and we spent hours and hours fighting this and whatever happens I can know that we had a huge team and we put tons of effort into it and so, if we lose, we didn't lay down and lose," said Chaney.

The city board heard public comment on this ordinance for the better part of an hour, not including all the time spent deliberating among board members over various aspects of the proposal.
