Is anyone familiar with this new letting for I-555? I can't find a MLK Drive in Jonesboro that is being extended.

Craighead Hwy. 18S 100657 I-555 Hwy. 49 (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. Extension) (Jonesboro) (S) New Location 4.6 $30 - $40 Million

There is no MLK in Jonesboro, unless one was recently designated and hasn't made any maps yet.  18S is Commerce Drive currently, so maybe they're renaming it or replacing with a new terrain build that will be named MLK?

Seems Commerce Drive was renamed last year.

edwaleni:
Commerce Ave (AR-18) now MLK Drive is part of the eastern bypass plan for Jonesboro.

The extension is to connect it with the otherside of the railroad tracks with its seperated counterpart and to redo the exit with I-555.

A new Truck Stop immediately made a proposal to build on an adjacent property.

The Ghostbuster:
Did they ever extend the Interstate 555 signage to Exit 49 (AR 91)? Or does it still terminate at Exit 45 (US 49 South/AR 18 East)?
