The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department is buying right-of-way for the bridge and 16 miles of highway roadbed between the proposed bridge location on the Mississippi River and the city of McGehee, said Director Scott Bennett. Plans are being prepared for delivery into the hands of a successful bidder.
There’s only one problem – the state doesn’t have its $900 million share for bridge and approach costs. The State of Mississippi doesn’t have its $300 million, either.

Interstate 69 status will be subject of Monday afternoon meeting
Coalition will also be discussed.
The superhighway will enter Arkansas on a new bridge that will cross the Mississippi River between Benoit, MS and Arkansas City, AR. The road will pass north of McGehee, to Monticello. It will cross the Ouachita River north of El Dorado, and bypass the northwest area of El Dorado. It will cross U.S. 82 between El Dorado and Magnolia, and enter Louisiana just north of Haynesville.
At present, the highway will cut through about 11 miles of Southwestern Columbia County, but no highway exits are planned in the county.
The only portion of Interstate 69 currently under construction in Arkansas is bypass around Monticello, which will connect with an extension of Interstate 530 from Pine Bluff.
