This is a press release from U.S. Senator John Boozman's office.  

A provision authored by U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) that enables Arkansas to designate a portion of Highway 67, from North Little Rock to Walnut Ridge, as “Future I-57” was included in the Fiscal Year 2017 funding that recently became law.

Bids will be awarded next month on the first projects that will make up a major interstate rehabilitation project in Arkansas.  Over 450 miles of interstate highways, including all of Interstate 55 from West Memphis to the Missouri Bootheel, will be rebuilt over the next couple of years.  KASU's Johnathan Reaves tells more.
