Proposed US 412 Upgrade

<< < (2/54) > >>

Lyon Wonder:
IMO, US 412 should also be upgraded as an eastern extension of I-155 in TN too between Dyersburg and I-40 in Jackson.  US 412 in TN and the above proposed upgrade between I-35 and I-49 would be the easiest sections of US 412 to upgrade to interstate standard anyway.

Disagree with your last part.  An Interstate-standard US 412 between the OK/AR line and I-49 would be  rather difficult to build due to topography and development both along and away from the existing roadway.

But there is a proposed /under construction 412 bypass of which AR 612 is a part.

Scott5114:
The only sensible number for this would be I-46. (48 would work too, but it will have a short concurrency with 44, so 48 is too high, and 42 is taken)

Plutonic Panda:
It looks like Inhofe is trying to work with Arkansas to get an interstate designation for 412 from I-35 to I-49. Lots of upgrades are needed and hopefully they can remove the tolls.




--- Quote --- OKLAHOMA CITY – Federal legislation was introduced Friday to designate U.S. 412 running through Oklahoma and Arkansas as a future interstate.

The measure would give the designation to the stretch of U.S. 412 from Interstate 35 in Noble County to Interstate 49 in Springdale, Arkansas.

It was introduced by U.S. Sens. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., John Boozman, R-Ark., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark.

“Our interstate system is the lifeblood of Oklahoma’s economy and provides the network for companies to bring materials into our critical industries, for businesses to locate in areas convenient for consumers and for commuters to get to work and school safely and reliably,” Inhofe said.
