LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas State Police have closed two of the three bridges that span the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock because a towboat operator reported that his barges may have struck the spans.
State police say the two barges the tugboat was pushing Friday night may be adrift and floating downstream.
Troopers initially closed all three spans in the state capital's downtown section but they reopened four of the six traffic lanes on the biggest bridge, which carries Interstate 30.
A Highway Department spokesman says state police have called in bridge inspectors to examine the spans.
There have been no reported injuries.
