Disappearing act

Going away. The nearly 50-year-old Arkansas Highway 89 overpass of Interstate 40, on the route to Lonoke, will soon be gone; workers began dismantling the span after the new overpass was opened last week. When the bridge and approaches have been removed, the entrance and exit ramps of the new Lonoke interchange will be completed, to finish the project. Efforts to build the interchange, to gain access to Lonoke’s industrial zone, began more than 15 years ago. Photo Ed Galucki
