LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Interstate 440 East bound is a mess right now.

What a mess! This is I-440 EB at Lindsey Rd. Iron pipe scattered all over the freeway. If you are headed to @flylittlerock, consider an alternate route. Truckers should use I-30 (hazardous cargo prohibited). #artraffic #arwx #arnews pic.twitter.com/WW3EC5y3zq
