US Highways in Arkansas
|US Highway Name||Responsible Area Manager||Date Started||Status||Comment|
|US-67||TBD||10/10/12||Unassigned||Edit all freeway segments as with freeways shown above. Change all non-freeway segments to Major Highway. Change all US Hwy Business segments to Minor Highway.|
Arkansas State Highways are too numerous to list here. If you have some specific segments that need work, build a table here (by copying one of the other table examples.) In general, AR State Highways should be named "State Hwy XX" and should be classified as a minor highway. Directional names need to be removed from two-way segments since they go both directions. For example, large sections of AR-5 were labeled "State Hwy 5 N." They should be changed to read "State Hwy 5."

|Delete Cameras||TBD||10/10/12||Unassigned||According to the Governors' Highway Safety Association, red-light and speed cameras are prohibited in AR. They may be used in rare instances, but as a temporary measure with an officer present. True red-light or speed cameras should be reported as "Police" since an officer must be present for them to be valid.|
Arkansas Approved Map Resources
While I personally find them useful for general awareness of an area, we are not supposed to use copyrighted sources for our map data. Below are some approved sources I've been using:
- Little Rock / Pulaski Area Graphic Information System - Detailed maps (with overhead imagery, if desired) of Little Rock and some surrounding towns
- Arkansas GIS Office - Arkansas' Official GeoData Clearinghouse
- City Maps - Arkansas Highways City Maps
