40,000 Motorcyclists Expected at National Bikers Event

Roundup attendees will be bringing personal motorcycles, cars, trucks, SUVs and RVs. Little Rock area residents should be aware that an influx of this magnitude will likely create traffic congestion on local streets, roads and interstates particularly near the Arkansas State Fairgrounds, Roosevelt Road, Martin Luther King Drive and Asher Street.

Attendees will tour throughout the city, River Market District, take day trips to other parts of the state, arrive and depart.

Law enforcement officers will be onsite and directing traffic along Roosevelt Road Aug. 3-7.
