Trolley Track Works
to start tonight
The repair date for the streetcar tracks in North Little Rock has been changed, with work starting tonight.
The city said people should expect a road closure at the intersection of Main Street and Bishop Lindsey Avenue starting tonight at 7 p.m. and continuing until 6 a.m. Monday. Work at the intersection will resume Monday around 7 p.m., according to a press release from the City.
On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, work crews will close the intersection of North Maple and West Seventh Streets.
at the main street
Construction of parks in downtown North Little Rock will begin in August or September along Main Street.
Parklets are sidewalk extensions of outdoor dining areas to the street to provide more space for Argenta’s bars and restaurants. The plan, a partnership between the city, the Argenta Downtown Historic District and the Rock Area Metro, will use a curbside parking space for parklets.
The parklets will provide additional dining space at Brood and Barley, Skinny J’s and Crush Wine Bar. The project is estimated at $213,436.
