The Hot Springs Bypass extension – Arkansas Highway 5, opened September 18, 2023, connects the existing Hot Springs Bypass (US-70/US-270) with Arkansas Highway 7 and the existing Arkansas Highway 5 in Fountain Lake. The new highway is 5.8 miles long and cuts through the Ouachita Mountains as it snakes its way through rural Garland County.
Our ride starts at the south end of the extension at a full interchange with U.S. Highway 70/U.S. Highway 70B in Hot Springs. Driving generally north, we pass the interchange with Mill Creek Rd before reaching the end of the ride at the roundabout with Arkansas Highway 7 in Fountain Lake..
