Let’s drive U.S. Highway 70 in Hot Springs from the old Little Rock Highway as it becomes the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Expressway (known locally as ‘the Bypass’), west along the south side of Hot Springs. At Exit 9, U.S. Highway 270 joins the expressway and runs concurrently with US-70 until exit 2 when US 70 leaves the expressway. Continuing on US-270, we end the video at the western terminus of the expressway at US-270.
Update: 9/23 – The beginning of this bypass is now at a traffic circle with AR-5 about 7 miles north of the beginning of this video. To see that segment, click Here
