You must drive I-49 between Fayetteville and Rogers often, lol. I said that when they widened it, go for 8 lanes or build the bridges and overpasses to accommodate it later.

I was shocked that OTA did actually provide for an expansion to 8 lanes when they widened I-44 between Kellyville and Sapulpa. All bridges are already wide enough and all overpasses have piers set back far enough so the future expansion will be a breeze. I say that because maybe there's hope for ArDOT to wake up to this.

The White River bridge on I-40 is built for 6 lanes even though it's striped currently for 4.  Same thing for 1 of the 2 St. Francis River bridges.  They are waking up, slowly but surely.  These are the greatest hurdles for 6 laning between LR and Memphis, so it's starting to sink in, apparently.

A pretty sobering picture of the quantity of truck traffic on this stretch.  Glad I'm not driving anywhere in northern Arkansas today.

Forrest City is eastern Arkansas , but it seems like a lot of accidents occur in that area.

You should see how many drive US 70 along side I-40 even without traffic tie ups on I-40.

Last month I was stuck in a jam like that for 70 minutes without moving in that general area. Not good that this is happening so often.
