LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Engineers working on the Interstate 30 corridor project in Little Rock are considering eliminating ramps in an entertainment district and moving access to and from downtown two or more blocks south.

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department says city officials have requested keeping the access to downtown but shifting it away from the bustling River Market entertainment district.

The next public meeting to discuss the project, originally scheduled for Feb. 23, has been postponed until spring because of the resulting engineer work.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1mhZX1o ) reports that department’s announcement is the latest turn in the project to reduce congestion and improve safety in the nearly 7-mile corridor between Interstate 40 in North Little Rock and Interstate 530 in Little Rock.
