The Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) conducted a public involvement meeting 🔗 to present the detailed design plans for the 4.1-mile new location roadway extending north from Highway 62/67 west of Corning and terminating north of Corning on Highway 67 in Clay County. The bypass would be a fully-controlled access facility designed to interstate standards.

The Corning Bypass is part of a regional interstate connectivity project, named Future Interstate 57  (I-57). 🔗 In October 2023, the Federal Highway Administration issued a Record of Decision (ROD) 🔗 identifying the Selected Alternative, or chosen route, for the Future I-57 corridor between Walnut Ridge and the Missouri State line, clearing the way for the next phase of project development. The Corning Bypass will construct a critical segment of the Future I-57 project.
