Interstate 440 Arkansas
Interstate 440 follows the East Belt Freeway from I-30/530 to I-40 around Little Rock and North Little Rock. The freeway loop provides a truck route for hazardous materials and connects with the passenger terminal at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT). Highway 440 extends from I-40/440 along the Northbelt Freeway to U.S. 67/167 (Future Interstate 57). The rural freeway traverses Ink Bayou and other wetlands into the city of Jacksonville.
The Exit number sequence along I-440 continues along Arkansas 440. Long range plans extend the Northbelt Freeway westward to the exchange joining Interstate 40 with I-430 at Crystal Hill. The roadway will be designed as a four-lane, divided highway.1
The Northbelt Freeway was completed by February 2003. It remains signed as a state highway, because it does not connect with an Interstate highway at each end.2 This will change once I-57 is fully signed along the U.S. 67/167 freeway leading northeast from North Little Rock and Jacksonville to Walnut Ridge.
