Or what is next?  Thank you!

The western leg of the Springdale Northern Bypass is tied somewhat to the XNA connector road as it will utilize AR-612 as a terminus.  The 2023-2026 STIP has $100M allocated in 2025 for the western leg from AR-112 back to US-412 in Tontitown, so that's all that we currently know about timelines, and that's the next leg of AR-612 that will be built.

There's $500K for project development in 2025 for each of the eastern legs, from I-49 to AR-265 and from AR-265 to the end of the twin bridges over the White River east of Sonora on US-412.  So, only engineering work will happen on those legs before 2026.  I attended the Public Involvement Meeting for the I-49 to AR-265 segment earlier this year, and here are the materials for that meeting.  They'll have to undercut I-49 and make it an overpass for AR-612 mainlines to be the lowest level of the 4 level stack.

US-412/AR-612 will be I-42 eventually.

Oklahoma started the process to sign US-412 as I-42 today:

Well, they certainly pulled that one forward.  The 2023-2026 STIP had this in 2025 a few months ago (and still to this day), and only at $100M, so nice to see it being made a priority.

MikieTimT:
Looks like they're making Old Highway 68 the on and off ramps for US-412B back to Tontitown/Springdale.  The current westbound US-412 lanes are going to take a northern bend and become an on ramp to westbound US-412 to tie back into the mainline, which will take an overpass over Old Highway 68 onto AR-612, which will at that point become US-412, relegating the current US-412 to US-412B, but that won't happen until the bypass is completed east of I-49 back to the twin bridges a while into the future.
