They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway (Bridge)

Just in this announcement:

Entergy to Announce Major Community Enhancement Project
Hosted by the cities of Little Rock & North Little Rock
Monday, April 22, at 9:00 a.m.
The Peabody Little Rock

Entergy Arkansas President and CEO Hugh McDonald
Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola
North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith

An informed guess: This will be the details of a project I mentioned earlier. Entergy is going to contribute to a plan to festoon the coming replacement for the Broadway Bridge with lights. Since the project hasn't even been bid yet, it's safe to say we're a good two years from seeing the finished product if I'm correct. And if we live through the downtown traffic catastrophe that is going to accompany the construction period, when the current Broadway bridge is demolished.

PS — It could be we might get a taste of the future with lighting on existing structures downtown.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
