Is this the long-proposed extension that would run from the existing US 70/Business 70 interchange, to terminate at the existing intersection of AR 7 and AR 5? If so, I expect the new roadway would become a relocation of AR 7. If that happens, would existing AR 7 become Business 7, or could it become an extension of AR 5?

Extension= YES

Relocation of AR 7= unknown, but I'd put money on it.

According to idrivearkansas, the new bypass extension will be signed as AR 7 and will connect up to existing AR 7 and 5. It's slated to be complete by mid 2022.

I remember seeing this proposed extension in my road atlases years ago, and then they disappeared. I had assumed that meant the extension had been canceled, but I am pleased to hear that was not the case.
