  • DEFICIENT BRIDGES: Website map identifies bridges in Arkansas identified as deficient.
Perhaps you've seen news coverage today on Arkansas's 156 deficient highway bridges, a figure taken from federal Highway Administration files.

Perhaps you'd like to see a specific list of those bridges. You can do so here, at a website, Save Our Bridges, the work of a construction industry lawyer who's written on the need for infrastructure investment. The construction industry — which naturally has an interest  — regularly provides data on deficient roads and bridges and need to improve them.

A search for a 50-mile radius around Little Rock produces a healthy number of the Arkansas bridges. The map then gives some specifics for each structure. They range from the heavily used Broadway Bridge in Little Rock, destined for replacement, to tiny structures such as a county road bridge crossing Indian Bayou in Lonoke County that carries about 60 cars a day.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
