Arkansas bannered US highway routing questions
« on: March 28, 2009, 09:41:31 PM »

Without visiting Arkansas, I'm trying to figure out the routings and existence of all the bannered US highways in Arkansas to get this Highway Browser accurate:
http://cmap.m-plex.com/int/usban/sw/

Checking what maps I can find and what's available on the DOT's web site, I'm left with these unanswered questions. 

1. US 49 Business in Paragould: I can't read the suffixes in the US shields in Google Maps street view, but I see signs for US 49B, something that looks like US 49K, and a TRUCK US 49& where "&" is a blurry letter that might be a B or a K. Additionally, there is a US 49Y in the city/county maps for a spur. None of this answered my question of whether US 49 Business reconnects to US 49 at the south end.

2. US 64 Business in Wynne: Business loop or spur?

3. US 64 Spur in Conway: Shown on maps, connects US 64 to the new I-40 Exit 124. Signed as spur or something else?

4. US 65 Spur in Eudora: Signed?

5. US 79 Business in Magnolia: business loop or spur?

6. US 82 Business in Magnolia: business loop or spur?

7. US 82 Business in Stamps: Maps say it either vanished, or the eastern half is concurrent with AR 53 and thus won't appear on the map (never more than one designation shown). Street view shows US 82B concurrent with AR 53 for the eastern half, but no signs for it on the western half. Keep or delete?

US 79 BUSINESS in Magnolia, AR does not loop back to US 79.  It terminates 1 block east of the courthouse square Where US 82B/AR 355/AR 19 intersect. AR 19 multiplexes w/ US 79B about halfway and both come into town together at that intersection.

US 82 BUSINESS, however, does loop thru town.  Its east end starts where US 82 turns north w/ US 79. It goes thru town, around the courthouse square, turns north w/ US 371, then terminates where US 82 and US 371 intersects northwest of town.

64 Spur Conway: signed as "TO US 64/ AR 25" or "TO I-40". The exit itself is signed as AR 25

64 Business Wynne: Business Loop

65 Spur Eudora: NOT signed

82 Business Stamps: 5 years ago, it was alternately signed as Business 82 and Truck 82

US 49 Business Paragould: Does NOT appear to reconnect to US 49 at the south end of Paragould. It MAY be posted along US 412, but would have to be field verified.

There is a 64B in Wynne along with a 64S (which was a gravel road until the 80s or 90s.

Based on Google Street View, it is 49B is NOT posted at 412/49.  Probably warrants further invetigation. ;-)

Thanks for some answers.

US 49 Bus Paragould:
What do you make of these signs?
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=36.052707,-90.505714&spn=0,359.950562&z=15&layer=c&cbll=36.052697,-90.505563&panoid=zjVCQKjNG7-FZb56NEp-Sw&cbp=12,103.59373859267143,,0,5
I can't say with confidence that the suffix on US 49 is a B or maybe a K for "Truck" to match the banner.

Then there is
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=36.052603,-90.504384&spn=0,359.950562&z=15&layer=c&cbll=36.052595,-90.504327&panoid=xUbl7owAOXdMTdUpDJeE-Q&cbp=12,102.10936359267144,,0,1.8750000000000002
Is that a B for sure on the US 49_ sign?  It kinda looks like one, though at that level of blurriness, maybe a K or something else could look the same.

Truck Route 49 would be 49T, but I've seen one or two instances of a TRUCK banner over a standard route marker or a Business marker (which would be a B route).

To my knowledge, Arkansas has no K routes. I know of a couple directionally suffixed routes (58E, 23W) and a few Spur routes (62S). Also a couple spur/connectors (such as 176Y).  C routes (City) are now B routes.

Runnning a quick check on Google maps, 49Y is posted as "TO North 49" and "TO West 412"
