Just days after half hour delays caused back-ups on Hwy.63 between Imboden and Black Rock it has happened again.
Shortly before noon Tuesday electricity in the Imboden area flickered several times. The cause of this was a downed line in the construction zone south of Imboden.
Both lanes were shut down for around 45 minutes before the Highway Department was able to open one lane to relieve traffic congestion.
The Arkansas Highway Department urged travelers to re-route using Hwy.117, Hwy.115 and both US.62 and US.67 for alternate routes.
No injuries were reported in the incident. The Arkansas Highway Department and the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department urge drivers to be extra careful while travelling through the construction zone south of Imboden, and expect “Stops” and delays.
