Another thought is to move the alignment up to Helena and replace to old bridge there. Arkansas 1 from Forrest City to just outside Helena is a 4 lane divided that could be upgraded to expressway standards to connect this with I-40. This would be what O would consider an eventual second outer ring around Memphis.

US 412 from Paragould AR to I-155

I-155 to Dyersburg TN

US 412 to Jackson TN

US 45 from Jackson TN to Tupelo

US 278 from Tupelo MS to Batesville MS

New expressway from Batesville MS to this new Bridge at Helena

Upgraded Ark 1 from Helena AR to I-40 at Forrest City AR then on to US 64 at Wynne AR

Upgraded/Widened US 64 from Wynne to Bald Knob

US 65(Future I-57) To US 412(my proposed I-22 extention)at Walnut Ridge.
