The wintry weather is a good chance to take advantage of the website IDriveArkansas.com from the Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department.

The website has updated information on different road conditions (info on traffic, construction zones) and a dedicated color-coded map outlining specific winter road conditions, such as whether a road is clear or has snow, heavy snow, slush, sleet, ice, ice patches or is flooded.

A number is also given for updates on these conditions: (501) 569-2374.

Information on Arkansas Welcome Centers, highway rest areas, weight restricted roads and bridges, and commuter park and ride lots are also included at the site.
