Ten miles inside the Missouri-Arkansas border rests this mile marker for Interstate 49 (and US 71) at Pineville. The first five miles of Interstate 49 in Missouri had not been constructed at the time the route was dedicated and officially designated in December 2012. About 15 miles of US 71 go between the disconnected segments of I-49 in Missouri and Arkansas.
