Little Rock, AR — Pulaski County Road and Bridge have closely monitored water levels in the Two Rivers Park and County Farm Road. Corp of Engineers predict the water will rise approximately five to six feet overnight.
“All structures along the Arkansas River within the Two Rivers area are compliant with Pulaski County flood plain standards, flooding will not impact living areas,” John Burton, Director of Pulaski County Road and Bridge said. “The living level is approximately 6 ft. higher than the anticipated flood level. Lower levels such as garage and storage areas should expect flooding.”
Burton says those who have equipment at the Community Gardens Center are urged to remove equipment today.
“Our supervisors and foreman are on-call to assess flood waters and place notification barriers where necessary,” Burton said.
Pulaski County Road and Bridge has also closed the North Side of the Big Dam Bridge.
Director of Pulaski County Office of Emergency Management, Andy Tranffanstedt said, “For everyone’s safety—please stay off the Arkansas River.”
