Visions for a new Broadway Bridge 

thebigpicture1-1.jpg

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department plans to replace the Broadway Bridge in 2013 with a $45 million project. Local officials, including Mayors Mark Stodola of Little Rock and Pat Hays of North Little Rock and County Judge Buddy Villines, want an iconic structure that would likely cost more than $45 million. Metroplan has tried to inspire interest in such a bridge with an online survey and a design contest. Only 364 responded to the survey, and among that number 43 percent said it was important to make the replacement bridge iconic, while 40 percent said the new bridge should be as attractive as possible within the budget. Though the Highway Department is not bound by the results, Metroplan has asked for public votes on the designs below and others; at press time, 10 designs had been submitted. To vote and for more information on the designs, visit arktimes.com/bridgecompetition. Read more about the bridge project on page 6.

    For more than two weeks, all women in Arkansas, and Arkansas alone, were denied access to a two-pill regimen to end an early pregnancy in the privacy of their homes. But Monday, U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker issued a temporary restraining order against enforcement of the law, Act 577 of 2015, and Arkansas women once again had access to a method of abortion available nationwide.
