Arkansas drivers urged to use IDriveArkansas.com for travel information

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AHTD) - The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) reminds drivers to visit IDriveArkansas.com before hitting the road this Thanksgiving holiday.

Extensive highway improvements are underway in the state. With those improvements come work zones. To aid in your holiday travel, AHTD has been working hard to open as many lanes as possible.

Still, with many ongoing improvements, travelers will likely face work zones and possible delays due to an increased volume of traffic.

Drivers are urged to plan ahead by visiting IDriveArkansas.com for the latest travel information. The new website includes live traffic flow, weather information, and details on construction zones.  Travelers can also follow us on Twitter @AHTD.
