Ribbon Cutting will be April 18, though the road may not open to the public.

That's quite a strange announcement, to open a road and not let traffic on any part of it. Whatever happened to delaying the road's opening until it is actually ready to be driven on?

My guess is after it's dedicated, XNA will start building their access road (which is part of the reason this section was built first). I'm hoping to go to the dedication, so maybe I'll get some answers there.

Wait. I miss this? Series EM on overhead signage, but Clearview on roadside guide sign? Why not replace both at the same time! :banghead:
I never knew the two could coexist peacefully! :pan:

I believe the stand alone sign has since been removed.

Anyone know the job number for those signs? I would like to find Arkansas’ standards for FHWA Series fonts.

Are there any dates on when the other segments of the AR 612 (future US 412) Springdale Bypass will be constructed?

The ribbon has been cut, but it will likely be April 30 before the road officially opens. I was also asked to remind everyone "No bicycles"  :)

I noticed that on the picture you posted on Instagram, the signs at (what I guess is) the end of the offramp from WB 612/Future 412 has signs pointing towards AR 112 north and south and a sign that says "TO" AR 612 west. Why is AR 612 west mentioned when the highway ends there? Or am I missing somethng?

I suspect it's a contractor error, maybe an error in the specs. Just to the south, there is a sign South AR 112 / TO West US 412. ARDOT needs to hire me to find all the sign errors ;)

Will the current US 412 become US 412B when the bypass is completed?

Circa 2006 (note I-540)

Thanks! What part will be tolled? East of I-49?

Only the XNA access road.

As far as current 412 becoming 412B at some future point, it wouldn't surprise me, but you're looking at several years down the road.

I guarantee they will. Unless they change their policy on business routes. When a bypass of a town is built in Arkansas, the old route typically becomes as a business route. The interchanges on each end of the bypass will flow directly into the business route and the business route will be easily reached by the mainline.
