Inspection to close lane on Hot Springs bridge

HOT SPRINGS (AP) - Arkansas highway officials say a routine inspection will make it necessary to close a lane on a bridge on the Martin Luther King Expressway in Hot Springs.

The closure is scheduled for Tuesday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Officials say the westbound outside lane will be closed between Carpenter Dam Road and Central Avenue, where the span crosses Hot Springs Creek.

The highway department says motorists should exercise caution in the area.
