Highway 18 seeing some relief from flood waters

LAKE CITY, AR (KAIT)- Highway 18 through Lake City is not completely clear of water, but it is improving.

Thursday the highway was partly covered by water from the St. Francis River.  However, enough water has receded to allow drivers an easier trip to and from Lake City.

Highway crews have put out signs and barrels to keep drivers away from areas still flooded on the shoulder of the road.

Earlier this week Highway 18 was shut down to only one lane.
