Governor Beebe and staff work to help stranded motorists

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK - Throughout Tuesday morning, Governor Beebe and his staff have been coordinating State efforts to assist motorists stranded on Interstates 40 and 55 in East Arkansas.

National Guard teams and State Troopers are checking on motorists to make sure there are no health emergencies. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is helping transport fuel to vehicles that have run out of gas.

The Arkansas State Police has been working throughout the night to clear damaged vehicles. Construction zones along both Interstates have exacerbated the backups and response delays.

You can log on to the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department website for a map with road conditions, or call 501-569-2374 to hear a recorded message.
