WEST MEMPHIS, AR - The Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department will host an open house public meeting for the West Memphis-Marion Area Railroad Overpass Study this afternoon and evening in Crittenden County.

The meeting begins at 4 p.m. and will continue until 7 at Magruder Hall (Room 108) on the Mid-South Community College campus in West Memphis.

The study was recently begun by the AHTD to determine the need for and the feasibility of constructing railroad overpasses to enhance traffic flow and safety in the area.  Maps will be available at the meeting showing the various highway/rail crossings in the area.

The meeting will give the public the opportunity to comment on the need for rail overpasses and to provide early input for the study.
