The City of Little Rock has issued the following news release regarding the road closure at River Mountain Road:
Due to a collapsed drainage pipe, a portion of River Mountain Road in Two Rivers Park will be closed off to vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic effective immediately until further notice.
This part of the road is located at the bottom of the hill headed east. There will be no access from the west side of Two Rivers Bridge. The expected repair time is approximately 8-10 weeks.
Until repairs are completed, the Two Rivers Bridge may be accessed through Murray Park via Rebsamen Park Road. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Original Story (Monday, Jan. 14):
Monday afternoon, the River Mountain Road became impassable when a large sinkhole developed.
No one was on the affected stretch at the time of the collapse.
The River Mountain Road is the main eastern approach to the popular Two Rivers Park, near the Interstate 430 bridge.
