Little Rock’s Robinson Center Music Hall, home of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, will undergo a renovation and be closed between June of 2014 until September of 2016.
The symphony is planning to use the Wally Allen Ballroom at the State House Convention Center as a substitute during the renovation.
Christina Littlejohn, the Executive Director of the Orchestra is inviting the public to an open rehearsal on Friday night, March 29, 7.15 p.m. at the Wally Allen Ballroom in the State House Convention Center.
Highway officials say the whole support structure where a tractor-trailer hit a bridge in the fiery accident Thursday will have to be replaced.
Spokesman Danny Straessle with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said the Young Road overpass near the Crystal Hill exit on Interstate 40 in North Little Rock is expected to be re-opened Friday evening with 200 tons weight restrictions.
Starting March 15th , the Pulaski County Circuit Court will be granting amnesty to those who have outstanding warrants for failure to pay court fines. Over 2,000 people who have warrants for the offense must actually pay their fine, but can avoid additional penalties.
People with warrants can go to the Circuit Clerk’s office to clear their name “and by doing this,” says Pulaski County Circuit Judge Vann Smith, “the arrest warrant will be recalled. So they won't have to worry about a traffic stop where there's an outstanding warrant on them and being arrested.”
As work continues on the Big Rock Interchange, where Interstates 430 and 630 meet in west Little Rock, the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department is sending crews Thursday and Friday to re-stripe pavement at the east bound lanes.
The re-striping has been postponed twice due to bad weather.
Spokesman Danny Straessle says there may be some detours and rolling lane closure to make sure the paint is dry before motorists drive by.
Tickets for a reception and book reading by two well-known authors will be on sale starting Wednesday.
Academy Award-winning authors Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana, known for their adaptation of Brokeback Mountain, will be in Little Rock from May 2-3.
“It’s always terrific when we can bring amazing authors to Little Rock. So, hopefully the audience will enjoy the authors as much as we enjoyed bringing them to Little Rock,” said Brad Mooy, with the Arkansas Literary Festival.
