Pine Bluff builds a cautionary levee

Arkansas News

The city is concerned if that levee fails, this area will be covered in more than a foot of water, so they built their own levee out of the road in front of Harold Staton’s truck and trailer shop.

They built this levee in the middle of the street, hoping it’ll hold back any dangerous flood waters.

It’s near Island Harbor Road in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

The city is bringing in dirt by the truckload.

Harold Staton has emptied out his trucK and trailer shop as a precaution while he waits to see what will happen.

City Crews built the levee in just hours, in an attempt to redirect the water if there’s a breach.
