As flood waters begin to recede across the county, more roadways have re-opened to motorists.

Highway 25 was one of the first roads to re-open.

Those who traveled from Wooster to Conway could see the impact of the flood. Homes that were surrounded by sandbags could finally be seen fully again.

Karen and Jeff Underwood, who are two Wooster residents, had begun clean-up and other demolition work on Monday to their old farmhouse that sits along Highway 25.

Other roadways that re-opened Monday include:


Lawrence Landing Road.
Highway 89 North at the intersection of Jerrell Road.
Highway 365 at the Pulaski/Faulkner county line.
Hensley Lane.
Springfield Road.
Easterwood Point Road.
Highway 89 North to River Ridge Road.
Burgess Lane.
Red Oak Drive.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission continued warning residents on Monday of high waters along Lake Conway.

In a Code Red alert issued Monday evening, officials said waters levels were "still above flood stage" but that the flood warning would "expire" at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

As of noon Monday, the lake "was at 266.56 feet mean sea level, 3.5 feet above normal pool."

"However, the water level is currently dropping over 6 inches every 24 hours," the notification said.

The AGFC said a low chance of rain accompanied by the current water evacuation will bring the lake's levels down.

"Rain chances are low for the next eight days," the last alert reads. "This will aid with the evacuation of water from Lake Conway."

For those looking to dispose of sandbags, city officials pleaded for residents not to throw them away in their garbage cans. City of Conway spokesman Bobby M. Kelly III said there are a number of ways residents can get rid of their no-longer-needed sandbags.

The Conway Sanitation Department is fully up and running again. All sandbags that got wet during the flooding event need to be dropped off at the sanitation department, Kelly said.

Those who wish to keep their sandbags to fill low spots in their yards are welcomed to do so. However, those with dry sandbags who do not want them need to take them to the Conway Transportation Department, located at 100 E. Robins St., Conway Fire Department's Central Station, located at 1401 Caldwell St., or to Station Five, located at 4655 Wescon Lane.
