Title: AR: US 63 rerouted
Post by: okroads on December 30, 2019, 12:13:05 pm
I was in Jonesboro earlier this month and noticed US 63 is now signed with US 49 from I-555 to at least AR 226. I did not go any further south on 49/63 so don’t know if 63 is fully signed all the way to I-40 now. This realignment was approved by AASHTO earlier this year.

Did you also happen to notice if I-555 is signed all the way to AR91 now?

Got a link to some photos? I'd like to have some visual evidence before I make the changes.

I-555 is not signed past US 49/US 63 South (Exit 45).

There are a few pictures near the beginning of this album which will give you an idea of what is signed:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/okroads/albums/72157712310488201 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/okroads/albums/72157712310488201)

In May 2019, AASHTO approved a relocation of US 63 between I-40 exit 216 in Brinkley and I-555 exit 45 in Jonesboro, AR. TM still has US 63 following the old route along concurrencies with I-40, I-55, and I-555, while the new route just follows the existing US 49.

As a result, the US 63 business routes in Jonesboro and Marked Tree have also been decommissioned.

The Marked Tree city map (https://www.arkansashighways.com/maps/cities/markedtree_city.pdf) shows AR149 taking over the vacated alignment on Frisco St.
In Jonesboro (https://www.arkansashighways.com/maps/cities/jonesboro_city.pdf), AR463 gets extended.

I've seen no evidence of this in GMSV (haven't exactly been searching old US63); haven't been paying attention to what's been said on AARoads.

Here's a 63 North sign from I-40 in Brinkley: link (https://www.google.com/maps/@34.9091556,-91.1912889,3a,23.3y,268.68h,93.83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sBvjl5wrzjfbQISd2ZcBgHg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192)

I drove I-555 and I-55 between Jonesboro and Memphis about a month ago and I don't recall seeing a single US 63 sign. I don't know what signage is like on US 49/63 (aside from what the_spui_ninja posted above), but Arkansas is so bad at signing concurrencies it probably doesn't really even matter if there's not a whole lot of US 63 signage there.

Before I do anything to the former business routes, I'd like to see photos of any new signage.

Thanks for the sign for the 49/63 concurrency. I'll work on moving 63 when I can free up some more time, maybe next week.

EDIT: If the rerouting of US63 is confirmed in the field first, I'll make the changes based on that instead.

I merged the newer US 63 topic with the older US 63 topic.
