I have a strong hunch that AR 10 (despite being a state highway) is maintained (in the Greenwood area) by Sebastian Co. Road Dept in Greenwood.
In AR, State routes are state maintenance, right? FWIW, They're in the ROAD_INVENTORY_AHTD shapefiles, with route numbers, section numbers, logmiles, and all the same info...

The reason for the speculation of AR 10 is due to lettings by the state for this specific area. I don't here much about Greenwood contracts for maintenance of AR 10. I have relatives in Greenwood and frequent the area regularly.

No doubt AR 10 is in the state's inventory, after all -- it is one of many heavily traveled highways in the Natural State.

Well, that's just like your opinion man...

It's maintained by the state, as all other state highways in Arkansas are.

Hee hee: "Complete I-49 between Texarkana and Fort Smith." (And more than 1 person agreed.  :-D )

Hogville is made of the dumbest bunch of numbskulls in America.

I may have understood wrong, but I thought someone at the 612 Dedication said finishing the 412 was  the first priority, then finishing I-49

“Right now, we do show it industrial. Let’s change it to commercial, retail, whatever all that would be. It backs up to the college’s property. It’s sitting on the freeway. The minute that a bridge is announced — not built, but just announced — that property … (someone) would pay $150,000 an acre for it and not even flinch.”

(Three guesses what "bridge" he means and the first two don't count - and watch what happens around eastern Gravette, AR if the Bella Vista Bypass gets funded next month:)

FWIW, it looks like 549 at 71 south of Ft Smith will soon be getting it's first commercial interest: Casey's General Store. Casey's already has a location at 549 and AR 22.

I'm assuming this has been posted here before.

You forgot Massard Rd ;)

We were actually on the way home from Fort Chaffee, and we accidentally took a wrong turn over here... so I don't have a picture of Massard Road.

So if the voters approve the gas tax hike in MO this fall, could we FINALLY see the Bella Vista Bypass finished?
