Arkansas State Offices To Open At 10:00 Due To Inclement Weather
Under the State of Arkansas's Inclement Weather Policy, State operations in Central Arkansas will be delayed until 10:00 this morning due to icy conditions in parts of the region.
Agency directors will coordinate with employees who are in especially treacherous areas and may require additional delays.
Bridges and overpasses are the primary concern. State-and-local police say that extended dry patches of roadway are giving drivers a false sense of security that normal speeds are safe. This then causes problems once those drivers hit icy bridges and overpasses. Continued caution on the roads is strongly advised.
