Radar speed signs added to highway east of Hot Springs

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department has set up temporary radar speed signs and centerline rumble strips on Highway 70 east of Hot Springs in an effort to improve roadway safety.

The Sentinel-Record ( ) reports that the rumble strips, which extend from Hot Springs to Interstate 30, are designed to alert drivers when they are leaving their driving lane.

Department officials expect installation of the strips to be completed this week. The department has worked with Arkansas State Police to determine the location of three radar speed trailers along the route to alert drivers if they are exceeding the speed limit.

Two electronic message boards have been placed at either end of Highway 70 that will display messages to remind drivers about the dangers of speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and texting while driving.

Arkansas launched a Toward Zero Deaths program in January 2014 to eventually shrink the number of highway deaths. The program promotes an interdisciplinary approach to reducing traffic crashes, injuries and deaths on the roadways by using education, enforcement, engineering and emergency services strategies.

Jim Fram, president and CEO of The Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce and other officials met last week with the transportation department’s director, Scott Bennett, to make sure that scheduled upgrades to Highway 70 and other projects were still on track in light of recent accidents.
