CONWAY, AR - Slick conditions have forced the closing of part of Salem Rd.
The Conway Police Department says Salem Rd. is closed from Meadowlake Rd. to Highway 64.
Police say there is a quarter inch to a half inch of sleet and slush on the roadway and things are expected to get worse as a winter storm moves across the state.
Conway Police remind drivers to keep safety in mind if they must get out on the streets.
They're also advised that should they get in an accident, encounter one, see downed trees or power lines, to be patient since emergency crews will be busier than usual.
As of 8 a.m., Conway Corp. was not reporting any power outages. The number to report outages is (501) 450-6000.
