Update: Damage Minor to Pier Protectors on Arkansas River after Little Rock Barge Accident

Monday morning inspection conducted by State Highway Department crews.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials say no repairs are needed for pier protectors on the Arkansas River after Friday night's barge collision.

Inspectors were on the scene again this morning to examine the large cylinders in front of the supports of the bridges that protect them from impact in case of accidents like this one.

AHTD officials say two of the pier protection cells were hit, one at the Interstate 30 bridge and the other at the Clinton Library pedestrian bridge. They say while the damage was a little worse at the Clinton bridge, neither will need to be fixed or replaced.
