Media Notice

    LITTLE ROCK (5-12) 

 WHO:                         Arkansas Highway Commission, Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials, local elected officials and others.

 WHAT:                      A brief ceremonial event to dedicate completion of the new Highway 100 Railroad Overpass.

 WHEN:                      Friday, May 16 at 11:00 a.m.  

 WHERE:                   The event will take place on top of the new southbound Highway 100 railroad overpass – located in northwest Maumelle just south of the old Conway Highway (Highway 365). Parking will be available in the right lane on the southbound side.

 WHY:                         The new Highway 100 railroad overpass is a $7.4 million project that eliminates a high volume “at grade” crossing at one of only two entrances to Maumelle. The new overpass not only eliminates potential train-vehicle accidents, but it can also mean the difference in reaching an emergency at the elementary school or even ambulance service saving someone’s life.  Approximately 15,000 vehicles a day use Highway 100 at this location and about 20-24 trains pass these tracks daily.
