Bridge on Hwy. 141 near Walcott now open

GREENE COUNTY,AR (KAIT) - State highway officials have reopened a bridge on Highway 141 in Greene County, completing several weeks worth of construction in the area.

The bridge near Walcott had been closed for nearly three weeks and had caused area drivers to look for a detour to get around the area. Crews had been working on routine bridge maintenance.

According to the Arkansas Department of Transportation, routine bridge maintenance caused lane closures on Highway 141 in Walcott.

Work began May 7 on the section, just south of Highway 412.
