AR Highway 612

I've been chatting with ARDOT on Twitter about the US 412 Bypass near Springdale. The first section from AR 112 to I-49 is expected to open sometime next year (no official date yet...could be sooner if Winter is mild).  It was revealed to me that the road will have the designation of AR 612. This will be the first (and probably only) 6xx highway designation in the state.

Similar to how they use AR 5(future 2di number) for future interstates, this will be their temporary numbering for future US bypass routes? Very interesting.
Runnin' roads and polishin' rails.

Cheater. AR 600.
Que? You mean the state park roads? None of them are actually signed. Same for the 800 sequence college roads (except 818).

ARDOT says the road should open this spring. Also, some of the signs along I-49 have been erected.

I wonder if this becomes a 3 digit interstate when complete?  I can see this eventually extended to Harrison much like I-555.

State Highway, sir. You referenced an Interstate Highway.
Well, that's just like your opinion man...

I doubt it. It will be US 412,  which is already 4-laned as a partially controlled access highway to Huntsville. 62/412 from near Alpena to US 65 is the same. 65/62/412 is predominantly 5-lane from 62 to Harrison. Harrison needs a better bypass, though.

No way will it ever be an Interstate. There's no need for it at all. Hell most of it doesn't even need more than two lanes total

I don't think we need the 412 designation, either.

Did you ever find out what those were about (besides airport access)?

Only one of those is a 6xx route. He didn't say "highest number".

818 is posted, but the others aren't.  The 8XX series are mostly college related roads. The 9XX series are state park related, I believe. 99.9 percent of the time, none of these are signed.

Apparently, it says here that AR-612 is currently open. Is that true?
I take pictures of road signs, that's about it.

General rule of thumb: Just stay in the "Traffic Control" section of the forum and you'll be fine.

On Wikipedia. I fixed the entry to say "Opens Spring 2018"

I'm presuming this is the construction that shows up on aerial imagery south of the AR 264 interchange.

Yes. It will eventually be the US 412 Bypass. Right now, ARDOT is only building the part between 112 and I-49, so XNA has a place to connect their toll road.

I don't see anything stating that it's open, merely that it was established in 2018.

Yes, well the entry has since been modified to say it opens in Spring of 2018.
