Small Town, Big Signs

Arkansas 37 at US 62

It's the center of Gateway, Arkansas, a small town near the Missouri border. It's where US 62 comes closest to Missouri in the western part of the state (US 62 enters Missouri in the southeastern bootheel of the state). A left turn north on Arkansas 37 will end in about one-half mile at the Missouri state line, where the highway becomes Missouri 37 -- thus 37 is probably one of the shortest highways in Arkansas. Note the larger than usual size of the markers.
