Arkansas Hwy Dept. plans for slick travel

January 3, 2014 (KTHV) - Parts of the state are making preparations for a snowy weekend. The Arkansas Highway Department held a conference call today to make plans for hazardous travel conditions.

Northwestern Arkansas was already hit yesterday with slick roads.

Right now, we're just dealing with cold temperatures, but with that weather on the way, the highway department is on standby should they be needed to help clear roads.

Crews have restocked their equipment and are ready to roll this weekend, if needed.

However, the Arkansas Highway and Travel Department said crews will not be able to pre-treat before the weather starts.

"We're not going to be able to pre-treat in several areas because of a lot of that anticipated rain. If we were to pre-treat and you have a heavy rain, it will tend to wash off any pre-treatment you put onto the roadway," said Danny Straessle, AHTD spokesman.

With winter weather visiting Arkansas this weekend, we want to make sure you're as ready as can be for anything that comes our way. We hope these links are helpful to you.

Be safe and stay warm!

Storm causes house fire, damage in Pulaski Co.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Lightning is to blame for a house fire in Pulaski County.

Lt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says they believe lightning started a fire at a home on the 3000 block of Jack Mann Road just after 10 p.m. Thursday.

The storms from Thursday night also caused a tree to fall onto a home in Jacksonville. Lt. Minden says the tree fell on a home on the 8000 block of W. Republican Road.

One person inside the home received minor injuries, but refused treatment. The home was deemed uninhabitable.

Lt. Minden says they do not have any road closures in the county, but there was widespread report of tree/limbs and power lines down across the county last night especially in the Hwy 300 and Hwy 365 North areas.
