I will have to pas thru Little Rock in a few weeks on the way to the Airstream Homecoming. I was a bit concerned about the interstate construction SW and E of Little Rock until I found this site
. They have live cameras placed periodically in the construction zone so that you can see just what is going on. By placing the mouse over a sign icon, you get what is on the sign and by placing the mouse over a camera icon, you get a live shot that updates every few seconds. I was actually able to track an 18-wheeler up I-30 using the cameras.
They show slowing or stopping trafffic with color codes. That doesn't help me, because I will be looking at it a day ahead, but it sure would be nice for locals. What is nice, is that I will know ahead of time when single lane stretches or potential slowups are ahead.
For a state that is often considered backward, I think this is a prime example of using technology.
