After 5 hours of being closed, Hwy 63 between Imboden and Ravenden was reopened. Highway Department worked throughout the day attempting to clear the snow covered roads while wreckers from Dail’s Wrecker of Ravenden moved several semi trucks.
Imboden was faced with semi trucks attempting to go around the stopped traffic by traveling down 4th street. Officers from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office and Arkansas Highway Police blocked 4th street and removed the truck traffic.
By mid-afternoon the traffic on Hwy 115 was still stopped, wreckers and snow plows were still assisting the Lawrence County Deputies and Arkansas State Police.
Temperatures are not expected to be above freezing for the next 24 to 36 hours. Roads will re-freeze tonight causing further travel hazards.
Lawrence County Deputies advise drivers to stay off the roads if at all possible. The Lawrence County Dispatch was very busy with calls from all over Lawrence County.
