Southern Arkansas

US 67 in Texas crosses the Arkansas border in the city of Texarkana and then parallels Interstate 30 to the northeast. At Fulton one crosses the Red River, a major tributary of the Mississippi River. One then passes through rolling farmland, with I-30 always close by. At Hope you cross US 278. Towards the northeast, forest areas are increasingly encountered. A fairly important town on the route is Arkadelphia. Here one crosses the Ouachita River. In Malvern you cross the US 270. North of Malvern, US 67 merges with I-30, which continues to Little Rock. In Little Rock, US 67 is double-numbered with I-30.

Northern Arkansas

On the north side of Little Rock, US 67 exits from Interstate 40. US 67 is then a freeway in itself. One then passes through a few northern suburbs of Little Rock, and State Route 440 ends at US 67, the last interchange in the metropolitan area. You pass Jacksonville, a last suburb that also houses an air force base. US 67 continues in its northeasterly direction, passing through an area of ​​meadows and small forests. At Beebe, the US 64. joinsin. 43 kilometers later, US 64 exits again to Memphis in the east. South of Newport one crosses the White River, a fairly large tributary of the Mississippi River. The freeway ends at Walnut Ridge in the northeast of the state.

Walnut Ridge crosses US 412, which runs from Mountain Home in the west to Paragould in the east. The last major town before the Missouri border is Pocahontas, where US 62 merges. It turns east again at Corning, toward New Madrid, while US 67 continues north for a few more miles, then crosses the border into Missouri.


According to Anycountyprivateschools, US 67 was created in 1926 and largely followed its current diagonal route through Arkansas. The continuing importance of US 67 between Texarkana and Little Rock waned during the 1960s when I-30 was built parallel to it.

In 2016-2017, the bridge over the Arkansas River in Little Rock was replaced with a double arch bridge. The bridge opened to traffic on March 2, 2017.

Freeway Little Rock – Walnut Ridge

The freeway from Little Rock to Walnut Ridge has been extended northeast in phases. The section between North Little Rock and Jacksonville is one of the oldest highways in Arkansas, opening to traffic about 1961, connecting to both I-30 and I-40 in North Little Rock in 1962. The second part didn’t open until 1970 to Beebe. The freeway was subsequently extended in stages during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, reaching the northeast side of Newport in 1994. On October 10, 2009, a 17-mile extension from Newport to Cash opened.

A more recent major project was the construction of the freeway from Cash to Hoxie over a distance of 28 kilometers. Construction was slow, work started around 2010 and the project was largely completed by mid-2015, but it took another year for the highway to open. The freeway opened to traffic on August 11, 2016. The Hoxie and Walnut Ridge bypass is older and is believed to have opened around 2001. At Walnut Ridge, preparations have been made for an extension of the freeway further northeast.

In 2002, the widening of the US 67 freeway in the Little Rock metropolitan area began. This has been completed in many phases. In 2004, the first 3 miles of 2×3 lanes opened in North Little Rock, which was extended to State Route 440 in about 2008. In 2011, the widening was completed to the south side of Jacksonville, which was extended another 1.5 miles through Jacksonville in 2018.. In 2019, the 7-kilometer widening between the north side of Jacksonville and the south side of Cabot was completed. In 2023, the remaining portion through Jacksonville will be widened to 2×3 lanes.

US 67 at Little Rock.

In the future, US 67 is to be extended as a freeway to Interstate 57 in Missouri. I-57 may then be extended to Little Rock, creating a direct highway between Chicago and Little Rock. In 2016, the probability of numbering I-57 increased.
