LITTLE ROCK, AR – Power lines down over I-630 near the Rodney Parham exit shut the highway down for a time and left nearly 2,000 customers without power Wednesday night. Now Entergy says all power has been restored.
There is a broken pole near where the lines are down but no report of a wreck. The pole will be replaced today but the power has been rerouted in the area until the pole is replaced and the lines are back up.
Traffic was diverted off I-630 both east and west at John Barrow Road exit (East-bound) and the Rodney Parham exit (West-bound).
Police also tell Fox16 a woman in labor was stopped on I-630 near the John Barrow exit. She was escorted to the hospital in an ambulance.
