US 167 Sheridan (Arkansas) bypass
« on: May 30, 2014, 10:06:01 PM »

Is the bypass open to traffic?  What's the speed limit?  What kind of intersection is at the rather busy US 270?  Please tell me it's a grade seperated interchange and not an at grade intersection or even worse, a roundabout.

It's open:

Since I have not seen any mention of the US167 Sheridan Bypass, I thought I would add to the forum that it was opened on April 3rd.   There had been quite a bit of consternation by the local cities and county government on the crossing of Arkansas 46 and the new 167 bypass.   AHD did not put a traffic light at this crossing but instead altered the crossing so vehicle can not go straight across but can have a place to wait between the divided lanes.   The issue is many tractor-trailer hauling timber or wood chips bound for mills cross this highway. The locals believe this will be a hazard that may lead to some extreme accidents.  As always AHD goes cheap and time will tell if this intersection will prove hazardous.

That's a deadly design.  Cheap old Arkansans refuse to pay taxes and we get rubbish like this.  Okies are the same way.  This should have been a spui or diamond.

This is Quitman, LA where 167 was rerouted from running through Quitman to curving around the town.  LADOTD could have just as easily kept the original road & let it intersect the new road (you can still see the original alignment, now labled as LA 155).  But instead, they curved the original segments of the road away and made all of the traffic turn onto the new 167, cross a bayou, then turn left to continue on LA 155.  This is a cheaper way that AR could have chosen than build a grade separated interchange.

A relative who lives in the area said the speed limit is 60 mph.  All the  interchanges are at grade, it was noted AHD has bought the property around those intersections to put in above grade intersections if traffic ever warrants it and the money is ever available. So the answer is it will never happen.

I just stumbled onto a schematic from AHD which shows what they have done to US 167 and Arkansas Highway 46 intersection. Here it is,

Seems like kind of an innovative design at Highway 46.

Wonder what the traffic counts were at US 270/US 167. That is probably what determined grad separated/at grade intersection

The 1st months impact of the US 167 bypass of Sheridan appears to have hit the city of Sheridan hard in tax collection. The Sheridan Headlight reported the city has reported the April 2014 tax revenue was down 12.3% when compared to the collection in April 2013.

Most of that area has been annexed for several years.  Mayor says he doesn't expect development to happen any time soon.  Your thoughts is what the AHD told the city.

I suspect there will be at least one kwik gas establishment built out there within the next 12 months.  Others will soon follow.  Business always moves to where the customers are.

... and the bypass will soon be bombarded with stop lights as the town will move out to the bypass. Same old story. This is why you make interstate quality bypasses. Do it right the first time.

The Fayetteville Bypass started as 2 lanes. As more accidents occurred, flashing lights were put up at the at-grade intersections. When that didn't help, it was gradually expanded to 4 Lanes divided.

Well, since they don't really need a bypass at all, that isn't the end of the world
