State Police Say Driving in Northern, Central Arkansas Most Hazardous

February 19, 2006 - Posted at 1:00 p.m. CST

UNDATED (AP) _ With sub-freezing temperatures and winds, many

Arkansas roads remain hazardous today. Arkansas State Police say

bridges and overpasses are ice covered in the Little Rock area, and

motorists are advised to stay off Highway 270 between Hot Springs

and Malvern because of thick sheets of ice.

Westbound lanes of Interstate 30 in Hot Spring County are

dangerous and state police say travel in parts of central Arkansas

is dangerous. Travel in Grant County is NOT recommended.

In northwest and north-central Arkansas, packed snow remains

frozen on some two-lane roads. State police urge people to stay off

the roads. Interstate 540 is in good condition, but motorists

should watch out for icy patches and slow down on bridges and

overpasses. In northeast Arkansas, motorists should use care and

slow down.

In southern Arkansas, traffic is moving along Interstate 30 and

two-lane roads are in good shape except for patchy ice. Bridges and

overpasses remain slick and hazardous.
