At A Glance
Website Tracks Traffic Snarls
Motorists navigating the state highway system can check travel and construction information on a new website.
IDRIVEARKANSAS.com enables travelers to locate construction work zones on the state highways, and determine if traffic conditions require an adjustment in travel plans. Additional layers of data can be toggled on and off to provide motorists with an overall understanding of what is happening on highways.
Among the features are a map layer that displays live traffic conditions. Highways are color-coded in real-time to indicate that traffic is flowing normal, slow or at a standstill.
Up-to-date information on lane closures and other projects is also available at www.arkansashighways.com.
