JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro E-911 and police are asking people to avoid a busy intersection, at least for a few days.
Road work has traffic "backed up in every direction" at Caraway and Highland, according to E-911 Director Jeff Presley.
He says police are urging motorists to avoid this area, at least for a "couple more days."
The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department is resurfacing parts of Highway 18 Southwest and Highland Drives.
Presley said the road is down to one-lane, and that is causing the traffic tie-ups.
AHTD began the project in late June, saying that it would take at least four weeks to complete with crews working from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
