State digs out; cold to linger

Utility, road crews keep up the pace

Central Arkansas Transit Authority officials (top) work on getting a city bus unstuck from the ice at East Fourth and Cumberland streets in Little Rock on Saturday. The interstates and some main roads were fairly clear in Little Rock and North Little Rock, but many side roads still were iced over.

After a storm that dropped freezing rain throughout Arkansas and as much as a foot of snow in some places, Arkansans can expect clearer roads and power to be restored within the next few days, officials said Saturday.
