JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Jonesboro Street Department has closed nearly one mile of Caraway Road to traffic.
The .7 mile stretch between Harrisburg Road and Stadium Boulevard will be closed until 4:30 p.m. Monday, according to Myra Story, the department's office manager.
Crews will be cleaning out the ditches along the road.
Because traffic is so heavy along the route, Story said it would be "too dangerous" for their workers.
Only emergency vehicles and residential traffic will be allowed through.
