AR I-49FutBel to be extended south to I-49

Ribbon cutting set to open Bella Vista Bypass

The ribbon cutting is set for May 10
...
The project involves the initial two lanes of a four-lane road.
Thus Future I-49 will remain Future I-49 for the time being.

no one can drive on it yet, but it will be open early next week. ... All that remains before the section opens is some miscellaneous paving and striping.

Once the new section is open, the route will be signed as Arkansas 549 as well as Future I-49. ... There will be two exits, one on each side of Hiwasse.

I'll do this after a pending Maine update gets merged in.

It's just connected to US71Bus for now, at the roundabout immediately south of the I-49(93)/US71 trumpet.
So the title of this thread isn't the best -- It's correct, it will be extended to I-49 eventually, but it just doesn't describe what's happening right now. (Splitting hairs, I suppose?) The full connection to I-49 will happen when I-49FutBel is converted to I-49 proper, when MO completes its portion to the state line. Years in the future at this point. We can start a new topic for that when it happens.
