The northern end of I-555 needs to be extended on the TM site from exit 45(US49_S) to exit 49(AR91).

Thanks,

I know when I drove that section at the end of March, it had not yet been signed. Hopefully someone can do some field research over the summer  :)

Has anyone field-checked this over the last five years?

I drove through Jonesboro this July.

A blurry photo from US 49/63, at the I-555 interchange, indicates that I-555 south follows US 49 from that interchange, while I-555 north follows US 63 to the northwest. "Blurry" because my camera was focused on another I-555 marker nearby, and the signage at the interchange was only in the background. I followed US 49 through Jonesboro, so I didn't follow I-555 northwest of the interchange (but I had driven that part of US 63 on a much earlier trip).

Interesting. I was there in May and there was no I-555 signage on the freeway north of that intersection.
Clinched:

2019 Streetview is lacking in signage for the extension.

The redesignation was authorized Dec 2020 (H/T mapmikey for finding the minute order).
On AARoads, Ozarkman reported that as of mid-March, "I-555 is still only signed up to Southwest."
Seems ARDOT was waiting for FHWA approval; their press release announcing the redesignation came about a month ago. So this might explain mapcat seeing nothing (on the fwy @ least?) back in May.

So this makes Oscar's photo a bit curious. With US63 relocated onto US49, that corridor would have recently had some signing changes. Maybe some wires got crossed at ARDOT, or maybe they decided Meh, close enough and they signed it a bit early.

I'll hold off till we've confirmation of some more plentiful & consistent signage, on a leg of road that didn't have a recent major change-up.
Hopefully won't be much longer, with the recent announcement of FHWA approval (and a little signage out in the field already).

Meanwhile in Texas, the Cresson relief route won't open until more than a decade after AASHTO's sign-off. Sometimes these approvals take a long time to become reality. :(

At least your item is being built, US 219 ALT in PA may never become a thing.

I-555 is now fully signed between US 49/61 - Exit 45 and AR 91 / Exit 49 in Jonesboro.

I shot photos northbound, and of the north end, and posted the new JCT shield added to US 63 southbound at https://www.instagram.com/p/CdQauJXr8fl/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
