Rep. Rick Crawford Reacts to Highway 63 Addition to I-555

11/23/2021

Jonesboro, AR – Today, Rep. Rick Crawford issued the following statement reacting to the Federal Highway Works Administration, along with Arkansas Department of Transportation, designating a portion of Highway 63 in Jonesboro as being a part of Interstate 555. This 4.5 mile segment will connection Highway 49 South/Southwest Drive and Highway 91/Dan Avenue to Interstate 55 and Memphis:

“It’s great to see another portion of I-555 completed and designated as interstate. I appreciate ARDOT and our local stakeholders coming together in 2015 to help me draft legislation to provide full Interstate designation for what was then US 63. This vital Interstate corridor plays a critical role in the economic prosperity of Craighead, Greene, and Poinsett Counties in Northeast Arkansas.”
