It seems like we'll all be old and gray by the time the Bella Vista Bypass is finished and officially designated Interstate 49.
Unless Missouri decides to be a good partner, and give Arkansas some money to finish off the last two lanes, and complete the Bella Vista Bypass, and Arkansas can help Missouri by making that court paper or whatever go away by using some special moves (and remember, when all else fails, use brute force and be completely ruthless), then yes, that prediction is coming true.

Right now Missouri is going to be lucky to even finish its own section of the BVB. From what I understand, I think Arkansas may be able to cough up the $50M to build the other two lanes if Missouri is able to work on their remaining section.

Which court paper are you referring to? Is this in reference to Bruce Watkins Drive?

AFIK MO is just waiting on money... If legislation can get their head out of their collective *$%^, then we can see it soon. (<10 years)

As for the court order, I'm assuming you mean the Bruce R. Watkins Dr in KC. I'm not sure of the community reaction of the road, but I can sense a restlessness in the city about the bottleneck. I would give it 10 years for the court to reverse it, and another 10 to get the ducks in a row to start the project.

Yep, Bruce R Watkins drive in KC. Still, Missouri is not doing anything, and that court order makes them really wish they should help Arkansas, and get done with the I-49 designation in Missouri.
