Additional Cameras In Place To Monitor Air Show Traffic

Additional cameras have been set-up to monitor traffic on U.S. Highway 67 throughout the Jacksonville area in anticipation of high volumes due to the Little Rock Air Force Base Air Show this weekend, according to Arkansas Department of Transportation officials.

Eight portable cameras have been strategically located along the route and in addition to five cameras already in place. These 13 cameras will provide event organizers and law enforcement with constant situational awareness of traffic as it makes its way through the area.

The cameras are also publicly available on the ARDOT Traveler Information site www.IDriveArkansas.com. Cameras specifically being used to monitor air show traffic are depicted on the site with blue-colored icons. Motorists attending the air show are reminded to “Know Before You Go” and check travel conditions before heading out. Delays are expected.

Additionally, ARDOT is widening U.S. Highway 67 between Vandenberg Blvd. and State Highway 5 in Cabot. Although two lanes remain available in both directions, the work zone is being carefully watched in order to facilitate fast mitigation of vehicle accidents and breakdowns.

The Little Rock Air Force Base has asked the Department to help spread the word on how to access the air show from U.S. Highway 67. See attached for a map of those routes and note the restrictions for entry.
