UAMS increasing Ebola safety measures


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Now that a second health worker has contracted Ebola, fear about the virus spreading to Arkansas is only growing, but health officials say it's still not completely warranted.

Reports confirm a breach in safety protocol is what allowed health care worker Nina Pham to first contract Ebola from dealing with patient Thomas Duncan.

Now with news of this second case, THV11 checked in with UAMS to see how their procedures are changing as the story of this virus grows.

"It seems very unlikely that the epidemic would spread and have the same degree of spread in a society like ours that's prepared to deal with it," said Director of Infectious Diseases at UAMS Dr. Robert Bradsher.

Bradsher said that about Ebola after news of Duncan's infection first spread on October 1. Now, the hospital is saying something a little different.

Big Rock Interchange construction continues


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – It's a project that's been underway for several years now, but we're getting closer to that finish line.

Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Spokesperson Danny Straessle said he's glad to be close to the tail end of construction. On Wednesday, construction workers added lanes to what will soon be the Shackleford overpass.

"If you are traveling through Big Rock today, you'll notice that on the inside, there is some concrete paving for where those new lanes will be," Straessle said.

The final concrete has been poured on the tallest overpass in the interchange. Part of the road is lined with Hydro Mulch, a sticky green substance that's easy to spray on rocky surfaces. It pulls in its own moisture out of the air, so there's no need to water it. And because it's full of grass seed, it's an easy way to attract vegetation.
