Thanks. Hwy 63 between Crittenden County, AR (I-55 junction) to the Jonesboro, AR area (with future plans to extend into southern Missouri) will be commissioned I-555. It is already interstate standards. Supposedly, all that's left to complete is a farm equipment bridge, so tractors don't use the right/emergency lanes to cross water at one point inbetween. This will be a very important route for the Memphis region as it will tie in an area that is currently designated as its own CSA with an approximate population of over 160,000. The Jonesboro CSA's southeastern border (Poinsett County) is adjacent to Crittenden County which is designated metro-Memphis. Also, Crittenden County is one of the 3 tri-state counties that contains the greater Memphis urban core. The other 2 being Shelby County, TN & Desoto County, MS. This is one example in part of why the Memphis MSA population is very underrated according to Census criteria.
