It May Be a While Before Interstate Junction Lights Are Replaced


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – We’re looking into concerns of the lack of lighting over a major interstate junction in central Arkansas.

None of the 11 major light poles along the Interstate 40 and Interstate 30 interchange work.

The city of North Little Rock said they’ve been out for at least four years, and it won’t be paying to replace them, claiming it would cost upwards of a million dollars.

The city plans to wait it out until the highway department works on the I-30 corridor expansion, which would include new lighting.

That completion date is scheduled for 2023, another seven years some drivers are worried about being in the dark.
