Bridge Over I-30 In Little Rock Damaged, Closed

Jun 6, 2013

For safety reasons, Arkansas highway officials have closed an overpass that crosses Interstate 30 in Little Rock.

The highway department said Wednesday that a truck hauling a backhoe hit support beams of the Stanton Road bridge over the highway and damaged supports that hold up the structure.

Officials say traffic on I-30 is not affected but the overpass will remain closed until the damage can be assessed and repaired.

The bridge was built in 1960 and about 3,300 vehicles travel it daily.
