State decides to replace, not add on to I-30 span

Traffic moves over the Interstate 30 bridge between Little Rock and North Little Rock on Wednesday. About 125,000 vehicles cross the Arkansas River daily on the bridge, which is more than 50 years old.

The latest plan for a $450 million project to ease congestion on the Interstate 30 corridor through North Little Rock and downtown Little Rock will require replacing the highway's bridge over the Arkansas River rather than simply widening it.
