[AHTD] US 371
« on: January 29, 2014, 10:07:26 PM »

I'm a bit confused over US 371.  Signage for it is hit and miss along Southbound US 71/59 from DeQueen to Lockesburg, but along Northbound 71/59, 371 seems to totally disappear.

I know a few years ago, it was fully signed along 71/59 in both directons and even had an END sign as you approached the 71/59/70/70B/AR 41 intersection.

Does it still begin at DeQueen or has it been shortened to Lockesburg?

Someone with some signage "know-how" needs to be in AHTD. 

And AHTD posted an "END" on a route?  That is surprising!

Used to be one in Oak Grove, though I've not gone by to check on it in the last few years

Arkansas tends to post end signs at locations where the route that ends is part of the through route, in other words if you go straight you will be on another highway.  AR 60's western end at AR 28 is another example.

Love these old pictures...

But... I have to say that I'm glad that AHTD went to Clearview.  All caps signage is harder to read.
