AR: New exit along I 40
« on: September 24, 2014, 09:36:27 PM »

I've been traveling 40 between NLR and Memphis and noticed a new or possibly a complete rebuild of a road with access to the interstate. I'm guessing its either going to be exit 173 or 174. Anybody have any idea about this project.

I can't find the original post, but it's a new exit for AR 89: it currently crosses 40, but will now have an exit to provide improved access to Lonoke. Should be finished later this year, I think.

Here is AHTD's post about the interchange. I assume AHTD meant early 2015, but IDriveArkansas is currently projecting Late 2014.

Don't you mean mm 142? As I recall, mm 132 is between Mayflower and Conway.

There is a new exit being built at MM 132:

(Form idrivearkansas)
Project Name: Conway South Interchange-Hwy. 365 (Grading & Strs.)
Length: 0.8 Miles
Location: Mile Marker 132.3 - 133.1
Est. Completion: Mid 2015
The purpose of this project is to construct the embankment and overpass bridges for an interchange with State Highway 365 on Interstate 40 in Faulkner County.

I was unaware of that construction project. My apologies. It's just that when you mentioned Maumelle, I was thinking of Exit 142.

The new AR 89 interchange (exit 173) is now open with a blank advisory speed sign.

Any word on an exit number for the soon-to-be new South Conway exit?

131 or 132 is my guess. Last I looked, they were getting ready to pave the ramps

Given the milepost location in the project description above, it should be exit 132.
