LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Developed by studioMAIN and Create Little Rock, Pop Up in the Rock is a rapid community development project that focuses on illustrating underdeveloped potential in local city areas.

The next Pop Up event will take place on West Ninth Street on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The PopUp West Ninth event will focus on Little Rock’s Historic West Ninth Street and will span from the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) at Ninth and Broadway to Dreamland Ballroom at Ninth and State and across the State Street overpass to the campus of Philander Smith.

PopUp West Ninth hopes to encourage pedestrian and bicycle traffic between Philander Smith College and West Ninth Street via the South State Street overpass, thereby bridging the gap that originally unraveled the urban fabric of the area.

New bridge opens but old bridge causes delays


NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - There are signs of progress in the construction zones along Interstate 40, but commuters can still expect delays over the coming days.

A new bridge in North Little Rock is expected to be open to the public traffic on Monday. The Norman Road overpass crosses the interstate just north of the interchange with Interstate 430.

While the new bridge will be open, officials hope to begin the removal of the old bridge. Work to do that will force lane closures and likely traffic blockage over the next three days.

Most of the work will take place during the night hours, avoiding rush hour traffic.

The Arkansas Highway Department reminds the public to always check I-DriveArkansas.com for the most recent traffic updates.
