NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department (AHTD) says the Young Road overpass will NOT be reopened by tonight.
The AHTD says crews will return to work on Saturday in hopes of getting it back in service.
Update (3:15 p.m.):
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department (AHTD) crews will work tonight to try to get the Young Road overpass open on I-40 in North Little Rock.
Their focus has been the column that supports the bridge to see if it needs to be replaced or not after Thursday's deadly truck crash and fire there.
AHTD officials said as of around three o'clock Friday afternoon, they were still installing hydraulic jacks to support it for now.
Once those jacks are in place they will reopen the overpass.
There will be a weight limit of 20 tons, which allows for everything but semis.
