Rerouting US 63 to follow US 49's route from Jonesboro to Brinkley makes sense. The only question I have is why they waited almost 20 years to relocate US 63 along this route, when they could have done it in 1999, when US 63 was first extended?

I am guessing ARDOT was waiting on I-555 to become official before rerouting US 63.

Most likely. Without Rick Crawford, it would never have happened , or at least for many more years.
