Hey: Now that the weather has warmed, the question has arisen. Is it legal to drive without shoes? -- Nancy

Drivetime Mahatma: New Broadway Bridge said to lack lane barrier

updated: 03/20/2017 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

Dear Mahatma: Hoow-raah for the new Broadway Bridge. However, I think a mistake was made in not adding a center barrier between north and south lanes. I foresee many head-on accidents and blockages, especially in rain, sleet and snow. Hope the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department gets this thought. -- Jim

Drivetime Mahatma: Driver says lights favor driveways

posted: 03/11/2017 2:31 a.m. Comments 2

Dear Mahatma: Recently there was utility work on North Rodney Parham Road. Traffic lanes and lights had to be altered to accommodate one lane traffic. That work has been finished for some time, but the traffic lights seem to be off-kilter. The light at Rodney Parham and Pleasant Forest seems to be on a timer rather than sensors. Some computer setting, I guess. The light at Rodney Parham and the entrances to Windstream/Christ the King Church seem to be set to favor the two driveways, not Rodney Parham Road. Very frustrating to be stopped on Rodney Parham when there is no vehicle in either driveway. Whom do we contact? -- Cynthia

Drivetime Mahatma: At Cantrell and I-430, redo nears

posted: 03/04/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Seer of All Things Traffic: As we near the finishing touches on the Broadway Bridge and await the 30 Crossing, there are two projects along Interstate 430 that seem to be lost. At Cantrell Road and I-430 there is supposed to be a new northbound on-ramp from westbound Cantrell. And what about that major rework of that whole interchange from Pleasant Valley Drive to Rodney Parham Road? Will those of us in the baby-boomer generation ever see these projects completed? -- Waiting in Traffic

Drivetime Mahatma: Repairing fried signal falls to city

posted: 02/18/2017 2:53 a.m. Discuss

Hey: The traffic signal at Maumelle Boulevard and Odom Boulevard South is out. I called the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department. They said it was the city's problem. I called the city, and the person who answered the phone said it was the Highway Department's problem. I figured this is something you can address. -- Joe
