It appears that part of the reasoning to convert it to IH is to get tractors off the roadway.

I would believe you except to get the I-555 name they had to get a waiver to allow tractors between Marked Tree and Payneway.

No one wanted to pay for a frontage/service road across the sunken lands.

There may be a waiver, but ARDOT's presentation says point blank at the 4:11 mark "NO TRACTORS"
This is about the portion North of US-49. The Marked Tree to Paneway section is further south on a portion that had already been certified as I-555 years previously.

Thanks, I thought you were referring to the entire route.
