Ron Montgomery and his wife, Angela, examine one of several maps outlining areas under study by the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department to relieve traffic congestion on Interstate 30 during a public forum Tuesday in North Little Rock. The Montgomerys own several businesses in the area under study for possible highway expansion, which the Highway Department hopes to start in 2017.
