Will the current US 412 become US 412B when the bypass is completed?
LGL164VL

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.

Except in cases like 62B at Fayetteville and Rogers. Also Flippin.

The old route through Waldron was originally a part of AR 28. It was renumbered US 71B soon after the bypass was completed.

Is there a map of this project?

http://www.arkansashighways.com/environmental/environmental_studies/001966/Maps/001966_2008.05.25_DPH_Disp_Cou.pdf

Circa 2006 (note I-540)

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

Only the XNA access road.

Thanks. Had to see how far out this was - it's pretty far out of there but in respect to other airports that were built out in the sticks at their time (Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky, Dayton, etc.), it's not really that much different.

The land was cheap.

It didn't take long at all to drive what opened up.  Speed limit is just 65.  They had the right 2 lanes of southbound I-49 closed a half hour ago hanging the new AR 612 Exit 77 sign on the gantry there at the Lowell exit (78).

Interesting in that last pic that Lowell is the north control city and not Rogers, Bentonville or even Joplin.

Google Maps really flips out when going eastbound on this stretch.  Keeps wanting to put me on the side roads that are parallel to it, which makes for annoying rerouting.  Don't think it's my phone as it doesn't do that anywhere else.  Not that you really need Google Maps on a stretch of road with only a single exit.

Maybe because there's no Street View yet?

I think he's driving it and it keeps giving him directions as if he were on side streets...
