HARDY, AR (KAIT) -

A series of rumble strips and new signs have been added at a key Northeast Arkansas bypass to help residents avoid accidents, officials said Tuesday. 

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department crews were at the Hardy bypass Tuesday doing work after the city's police chief raised questions about safety in the area.

Several accidents have happened at the end of the bypass in recent months, and officials are hopeful that the rumble strips and signs can help drivers slow down and avoid accidents.
