    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AHTD) -- The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) reminds drivers to visit IDriveArkansas.com before traveling over the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

    Extensive highway improvements continue in the state. With those improvements come work zones. To aid in your holiday travel, AHTD has been working hard to open as many lanes as possible. Still, travelers will likely face work zones and possible delays due to increased traffic volume.

    Drivers are urged to plan ahead by visiting IDriveArkansas.com for the latest travel information. The new website includes live traffic flow, weather information, and details on construction zones. Travelers can also follow us on Twitter @AHTD.

    Below is a list of Arkansas' major lane closures during the holidays.
