Will the contractors for the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department meet a 24-hour deadline from the implosion of the Broadway Bridge yesterday afternnon to clear the Arkansas River navigation channel? And what if they don't?

Dispatches from the highway department indicate it's a big and difficult job.  But shortly before 11 a.m., the department indicated the big piece of structural steel was moving.

UPDATE: At 5 p.m., cleanup was still continuing.
