🚙 Drive America’s Highways for 131 miles east along Interstate 40 in Arkansas from Little Rock to Memphis
We start the drive from Little Rock to Memphis driving east on Interstate 40 from the junction with Interstate 30 in North Little Rock. Passing the junction with U.S. Highway 67 (Future Interstate 57), continue east to leave the metro at the junction with Interstate 440/Arkansas 440. Driving through generally wooded areas, we pass several interchanges before making our way into Lonoke. Passing junctions with AR-89 and AR-31, the scenery changes to primarily farmland as we leave Lonoke and make our way towards Carlisle.
Passing the Carlisle interchange (AR-13), we turn slightly northeast to the interchange with AR-11 just north of Hazen. Crossing the White River on a newly constructed overpass, we pass the Bisco interchange (AR-33) before passing through the Dagmar State WMA and entering Brinkley at the interchange with U.S. Highway 49. Leaving Brinkley heading northeast, we pass through Wheatley and Palestine to enter Forrest City at an interchange with Arkansas Highway 1. Traveling through the interchanges with AR-1B and AR-284, we cross Crowley’s Ridge to leave Forrest City, turning even further northeast towards West Memphis.
At Hughes, the highway turns due east at the interchange with U.S. Highway 79 to pass through Lehi before reaching West Memphis were we once again turn northeast to the junction with Interstate 55 north. Staying on I-40 through the interchange, we turn southeast briefly before turning east again at the junction with Interstate 55 south. Leaving West Memphis, we soon begin the drive across the Hernando DeSoto Bridge to leave Arkansas and enter Tennessee at Memphis, where we end the video.
