The Broadway Bridge countdown clock

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department has a countdown clock running on the 180-day period in which a contractor, it is hoped, will replace and reopen the Broadway Bridge. There are financial incentives for that deadline to be met and disincentives for missing.

I confess things haven't appeared as bad as I feared in the first few days of closure. But it's also true that my particular commute begins west of the major impact zone and I no long have to deal with backups when crossing Broadway, because it currently carries no traffic to speak of.
