Arkansas Highway 33
Highway 33 is a north–south state highway in eastern Arkansas. The highway runs 23.86 miles from Highway 130 north of DeWitt to Highway 37 east of Tupelo. Highway 33 connects four county seats: DeWitt, DeValls Bluff, Des Arc and Augusta. One of the original Arkansas state highways, the highway's routing has remained the same since inception, with the exception of one extension in 1956. Highway 33 begins at Highway 130 north of DeWitt in Arkansas County on the Grand Prairie in the Arkansas Delta; the highway runs north to a brief overlap with Highway 153 at Lagrue, followed by the western terminus of Highway 33 Spur at Casscoe. Continuing north, the highway reaches a T-intersection with Highway 146. Highway 33 forms a 1.0 mile concurrency with Highway 146 before turning north toward Monroe County. After riding the Arkansas/Monroe county line for 1.5 miles, the route enters Prairie County for 2.49 miles before entering the western portion of Monroe County. The route serves as the western terminus for Highway 366 before entering the town of Roe.
Beginning in Roe, Highway 33 forms a concurrency with US Highway 79 northbound for 1.2 miles. The routes split north of town, with Highway 33 turning due west and passing the Clarendon Municipal Airport before exiting the county northbound. Returning to Prairie County, Highway 33 serves has intersections with Highway 86 and Highway 302 and passes farm fields and channel catfish aquaculture ponds before entering DeValls Bluff, one of two county seats of Prairie County. Shortly after entering the city, Highway 33 begins a 4.1-mile concurrency with US 70 through the city, over the White River and into Fredonia. Highway 33 turns north, interchanging with Interstate 40 and passing agricultural land on the west side of the road and the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge to the east; the highway has an 6.7-mile overlap with Highway 38 east of Des Arc until meeting the Woodruff County line at Little Dixie. Upon entering Woodruff County, Highway 33 continue north along the western edge of the Cache River NWR, encountering Highway 262 twice and passing through Gregory.
The road intersects Highway 260 before intersecting with Highway 33 City. Highway 33 bypasses Augusta to the east before meeting US 64 and beginning an overlap around Augusta's northeastern city limits; the overlap ends after 1.2 miles and Highway 33 again becomes a rural route passing through agricultural areas. Upon entering the southern portion of Jackson County, the route runs east to Tupelo, where a southbound concurrency with Highway 17 forms for 1.5 miles to Overcup, when it turns east, crosses the Cache River, terminates at Highway 37. Highway 33 was an original Arkansas state highway; the highway was extended south from US 79 in Roe to its current southern terminus by the Arkansas State Highway Commission on May 9, 1956. Highway 33's original alignment through Augusta was restored to the state highway system in 1956 as Highway 33 City; the alignment was shifted in 1970 to pass by the Clarendon Municipal Airport. Arkansas Highway 33 has two total auxiliary routes. Hwy. 33 spur is a short spur route near Casscoe serving as a connector to a residential area near the White River.
Hwy. 33 City is a business route in Augusta serving the downtown business district while the parent route bypasses the city to the east and north. Highway 33 Spur is a spur route of 1.75 miles in Casscoe. The route runs east from Highway 33 to a residential area near the White River. Major intersections The entire route is in Arkansas County. Highway 33 City is a business route of 3.10 miles in Augusta. Route description Highway 33C begins at Highway 33 southeast of Augusta; the highway runs due west into New Augusta. As Gregory St. In the city limits, Highway 33C curves north and becomes 6th St, turns west becoming Sycamore St and turns again north on 3rd St. Highway 33 City begins an overlap with U. S. Route 64 Business at Main St, the two highways pass through the Augusta Commercial Historic District. Now in the oldest part of Augusta, the highways are paralleled by the Augusta History Walk. Highway 33 passes the Ferguson House, Augusta Presbyterian Church and Woodruff County Courthouse, all listed on the National Register of Historic Places before turning onto Magnolia St, passing the Augusta Memorial Park, turning onto 5th St, terminating at US 64.

Oklahoma State Highway 3
State Highway 3 abbreviated as SH-3 or OK-3, is a highway maintained by the U. S. state of Oklahoma. Traveling diagonally through Oklahoma, from the Panhandle to the far southeastern corner of the state, SH-3 is the longest state highway in the Oklahoma road system, at a total length of 615 miles via SH-3E. Highway 3 begins at the Colorado state line 19 mi north of Oklahoma. At this terminus, it is concurrent with US-287/US-385, it remains concurrent with the two U. S. Routes until reaching Boise City, where it encounters a traffic circle which contains five other highways. After the circle, US-385 splits off, SH-3 overlaps US-287, US-56, US-64, US-412, though US-56 and US-287 both split off within the next 8 miles. In Guymon, US-64 splits off. At Elmwood, US-270 joins US-412, coming from a concurrency with State Highway 23. SH-3 remains concurrent with US-270 through Watonga. In Seiling, US-183 leaves the concurrency but is replaced by U. S. Highway 281. SH-33 joins the roadbed 20 miles later. In Watonga, SH-33 and SH-3 split off from US-270 and US-281.
Highways 3 and 33 remain concurrent for 28 more miles, until Kingfisher, where SH-3 joins U. S. Highway 81, it will stay concurrent with US-81 through the town of Okarche. Three miles after Okarche, SH-3 leaves US-81; this marks the first point. Beginning at the split from US-81, Highway 3 becomes a major artery in the Oklahoma City highway system known as the Northwest Expressway because it is a diagonal route and because it serves the northwestern part of the metro area, it skirts the northern limits of El Reno before entering the Oklahoma City limits. The often-congested Northwest Expressway passes through the suburb of Warr Acres and passes close to Lake Hefner. At the intersection with the Lake Hefner Parkway, SH-3 again re-enters a concurrency; the Lake Hefner Parkway ends shortly after, SH-3 becomes concurrent with Interstate 44 through the western side of the city. Near Will Rogers World Airport, Highway 3 transfers to I-240 along the southern side of the city. After I-240 ends, SH-3 is transferred onto I-40.
In Shawnee, SH-3 splits into two highways, SH-3E and SH-3W. SH-3W splits off I-40 onto U. S. Highway 177, along with US-270, at I-40 milemarker 181, it continues along with US-270 and 177 through the west side of Shawnee, continues south of that city until Tecumseh, where US-270 splits off. South of Asher, Oklahoma, SH-3W leaves veers southeast toward Ada. SH-3E, the longer of the two split routes, was the original routing of Highway 3 before the two highways were split, it remains on I-40 for five miles. When it does split off, it soon joins SH-18, it follows a route closer to the center of Shawnee. After leaving Shawnee, it heads southeast toward Seminole. Here, it meets US-377/SH-99. SH-3E merges onto this highway, they will remain concurrent until after they reach Ada. In Ada, SH-3E and SH-3W are become SH-3 once again. SH-3 becomes part of the Richardson Loop, a freeway around the west and south sides of Ada. Throughout the Richardson Loop, it overlaps US-377 / SH-99 at different times; the highway becomes two-lane once again and heads southeast to the town of Coalgate, where begins an 18-mile concurrency with U.
S. Highway 75, lasting through Atoka. In Atoka, US-75 splits off to join U. S. Highway 69. Two miles west of Antlers, the highway has an interchange with the Indian Nation Turnpike, in Antlers it intersects U. S. Highway 271. After reaching the town of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, it turns southward and overlaps US-259 and US-70. Near Idabel, the highway splits off after being with US-259 for 13 mi. Twenty-eight miles it becomes Highway 32 as it crosses the state line into Arkansas; the current SH-3 was designated on 15 May 1939. The original highway included all of current SH-3 up to Antlers, where it terminated at US-271, it was extended to the Arkansas state line on 4 August 1952. SH-3 ended there concurrent with US-70 and SH-7, near Arkansas. On 7 January 1963, the highway was given its own alignment from near Idabel to Arkansas, taking over that of SH-21, eliminated at that time. From the highway's commissioning to 1976, there was only one fork of SH-3 between Shawnee and Ada, the path of current SH-3E.
SH-3W and SH-3E were created on 4 October 1976. Other than minor realignments, the highway remains the same today. In the early 1980s, Governor George Nigh was able to obtain $97.1 million to upgrade the highway between Oklahoma City and Colorado, despite opponents labeling the project "the highway to nowhere". House Concurrent Resolution 1067 labeled the highway as "Governor George Nigh's Northwest Passage." ODOT named the highway on 2 February 1981. SH-3's concurrency with Interstate 44 in Oklahoma City is an example of a wrong-way concurrency – I-44 West is SH-3 East and vice versa. SH-3's concurrency with US-70 is a wrong-way concurrency, as US-70 is signed as going west and SH-3 as going east; the SH-3 bypass around Atoka is named the Cecil B. "Bud" Greathouse Bypass. It was designated by ODOT on 4 October 1982. SH-3 had one lettered spur, SH-3A, which continued the alignment of the Northwest Expressway for two more miles before ending at Interstate 44 near Penn Square Mall, it was known as SH-66A, a spur off U.
S. Highway 66; the combined effect of US-66 being decommissioned and "3A" being a more logical name for an extension of Highway 3 led to the name change. State Highway 3A was decommissioned in 2009. SH-3 at OKHighways.com SH-3E at O
Ashdown is a city in Little River County, United States. The community was incorporated in 1892 and has been the county seat since 1906. Located within the Arkansas Timberlands between the Little River and the Red River, Ashdown's economy and development have been tied to the timber industry, a trend that continues to this day. Ashdown's population at the 2010 census was a slight decrease from the 2000 census; the city's well-preserved history and proximity to outdoor recreation such as Millwood State Park draws tourists to the area. Although not within the Texarkana metropolitan area, the city's proximity to Texarkana impacts many areas of life in Ashdown. Founded as a small farming community, Ashdown was known as Turkey Flats and Keller before being renamed by Judge Lawrence Alexander Byrne. Following his Keller mill being "burned down to ashes", Byrne vowed to rebuild and found a town named Ashdown, it was incorporated on June 11, 1892 as Ashdown, rapid growth began in 1895 following the railroad reaching town.
The Arkansas and Choctaw Railroad connected Ashdown to Arkinda, the growth of the Kansas City Southern Railway, the Frisco and the Memphis and Gulf Railroad continued to grow the city and her timber industry, utilizing steamboats and flatboats to ship lumber. Following World War II, Ashdown's economy began to diversify, its location near two rivers attracted manufacturing plants, such as Coca-Cola bottling plant, box factory, clothing plant, ice plant and a pallet plant. The United States Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Little River and Saline River at their confluence in 1966, forming Millwood Lake; the lake's recreational value attracted a Nekoosa Paper Company paper mill two years still in operation today after being purchased by Domtar. The Little River Memorial Hospital was built during this period of rapid building and development. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 7.2 square miles, of which 7.1 square miles is land and 0.04 square miles is water.
Millwood Lake is located seven miles east of the town. As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 4,723 people residing in the city; the racial makeup of the city was 62.4% White, 31.2% Black, 0.9% Native American, 0.4% Asian, 0.2% from some other race and 2.0% from two or more races. 2.9% were Hispanic or Latino of any race.

A farmer's market is hosted in City Park every Tuesday and Saturday during the growing season. Downtown Ashdown has been the economic and political hub of Little River County. Today, it is preserved by the National Register of Historic Places as the Ashdown Commercial Historic District. Bounded by Keller, E. Main, N. Constitution streets, the district encompasses 32 contributing properties deemed instrumental in Ashdown's farming and timber industries in the early 20th century; the nearby Memphis and Gulf Railroad Depot is listed on the NRHP due to the strong tie between the success of the railroad and the Ashdown economy. The Hunter-Coulter Museum at 310 N. 2nd Street is managed by the Little River County Historical Society.

Oklahoma is a state in the South Central region of the United States, bordered by Kansas on the north, Missouri on the northeast, Arkansas on the east, Texas on the south, New Mexico on the west, Colorado on the northwest. It is the 28th-most populous of the fifty United States; the state's name is derived from the Choctaw words okla and humma, meaning "red people". It is known informally by its nickname, "The Sooner State", in reference to the non-Native settlers who staked their claims on land before the official opening date of lands in the western Oklahoma Territory or before the Indian Appropriations Act of 1889, which increased European-American settlement in the eastern Indian Territory. Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory were merged into the State of Oklahoma when it became the 46th state to enter the union on November 16, 1907, its residents are known as Oklahomans, its capital and largest city is Oklahoma City. A major producer of natural gas and agricultural products, Oklahoma relies on an economic base of aviation, telecommunications, biotechnology.
Both Oklahoma City and Tulsa serve as Oklahoma's primary economic anchors, with nearly two thirds of Oklahomans living within their metropolitan statistical areas. With ancient mountain ranges, prairie and eastern forests, most of Oklahoma lies in the Great Plains, Cross Timbers, the U. S. Interior Highlands, a region prone to severe weather. More than 25 Native American languages are spoken in Oklahoma, ranking third behind Alaska and California. Oklahoma is on a confluence of three major American cultural regions and served as a route for cattle drives, a destination for Southern settlers, a government-sanctioned territory for Native Americans; the name Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw phrase okla humma meaning red people. Choctaw Nation Chief Allen Wright suggested the name in 1866 during treaty negotiations with the federal government on the use of Indian Territory, in which he envisioned an all-Indian state controlled by the United States Superintendent of Indian Affairs. Equivalent to the English word Indian, okla humma was a phrase in the Choctaw language that described Native American people as a whole.
Oklahoma became the de facto name for Oklahoma Territory, it was approved in 1890, two years after the area was opened to white settlers. The name of the state is Pawnee: Uukuhuúwa, Cayuga: Gahnawiyoˀgeh. In the Chickasaw language, the state is known as Oklahomma', in Arapaho as bo'oobe'. Oklahoma is the 20th-largest state in the United States, covering an area of 69,899 square miles, with 68,595 square miles of land and 1,304 square miles of water, it lies in the Great Plains near the geographical center of the 48 contiguous states. It is bounded on the east by Arkansas and Missouri, on the north by Kansas, on the northwest by Colorado, on the far west by New Mexico, on the south and near-west by Texas. Much of its border with Texas lies along a failed continental rift; the geologic figure defines the placement of the Red River. The Oklahoma panhandle's Western edge is out of alignment with its Texas border; the Oklahoma/New Mexico border is 2.1 miles to 2.2 miles east of the Texas line. The border between Texas and New Mexico was set first as a result of a survey by Spain in 1819.
It was set along the 103rd meridian. In the 1890s, when Oklahoma was formally surveyed using more accurate surveying equipment and techniques, it was discovered the Texas line was not set along the 103rd meridian. Surveying techniques were not as accurate in 1819, the actual 103rd meridian was 2.2 miles to the east. It was much easier to leave the mistake than for Texas to cede land to New Mexico to correct the surveying error; the placement of the Oklahoma/New Mexico border represents the true 103rd meridian. Cimarron County in Oklahoma's panhandle is the only county in the United States that touches four other states: New Mexico, Texas and Kansas. Oklahoma is between the Great Plains and the Ozark Plateau in the Gulf of Mexico watershed sloping from the high plains of its western boundary to the low wetlands of its southeastern boundary, its highest and lowest points follow this trend, with its highest peak, Black Mesa, at 4,973 feet above sea level, situated near its far northwest corner in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
The state's lowest point is on the Little River near its far southeastern boundary near the town of Idabel, which dips to 289 feet above sea level. Among the most geographically diverse states, Oklahoma is one of four to harbor more than 10 distinct ecological regions, with 11 in its borders—more per square mile than in any other state, its western and eastern halves, are marked by extreme differences in geographical diversity: Eastern Oklahoma touches eight ecological regions and its western half contains three. Although having fewer ecological regions Western Oklahoma contains many relic species. Oklahoma has four primary mountain ranges: the Ouachita Mountains, the Arbuckle Mountains, the Wichita Mountains, the Ozark Mountains. Contained within the U. S. Interior Highlands region, the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains are the only major mountainous region between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachians. A portion of the Flint Hills stretches into north-central Oklahoma, near the state's eastern border, The Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department regards Cavanal Hill as the world's tallest hill.

Hope Municipal Airport
Hope Municipal Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located four nautical miles northwest of the central business district of Hope, a city in Hempstead County, United States. It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2015–2019, which categorized it as a general aviation airport. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Federal Emergency Management Agency signed a $25,000-per-month lease with the city to use 453 acres at the Hope Municipal Airport as a staging area for trailers About 12,000 travel trailers and 8,300 mobile homes sat at the airport. Many of them were never used by the victims of other emergency; the Southwestern Proving Ground was utilized during World War II as an airfield for bombers and a testing ground for artillery shells and air bombs. The proving ground was in operation from 1941 to 1945 and was a major employer of Hempstead, Nevada and Lafayette counties; the construction of the Southwestern Proving Ground was part of the U. S. Government's National Defense Program which provided factories for the manufacture of munitions and tanks in preparation for an eventual war.
The news of construction on a proving ground in Hope became official in June 1941. The Real Estate Department of the War Department was in charge of acquiring land by filing condemnation proceedings against the tract and taking possession of those sections they required to begin immediate work. After the initial evacuation order the War Department decided they needed more room for an airport so they added more acres. In the end 404 families were relocated by a deadline of July 24. Callahan Construction Company was awarded the job of erecting the proving ground by the War Department and the hiring of 4,000 construction workers began July 15. Senator Spencer and the project director, W. K. Mellyor, agreed upon a guarantee of preferential treatment of local citizens in considerations for jobs; when the airport was completed it had the third longest runway in the United States. Opening day festivities were postponed because of the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941; the Army Air Force Proving Ground Command 616th Army Air Corps Detachment used the facility to test ammunition during World War II.
Testing began in January 1942 and Hempstead County residents were allowed within the gates of the proving ground in April. Troops explored the capabilities of LaBolenge chronographs and solenoid chronographs for accuracy and reliability. 105-mm shells that had fired prematurely in battle were determined by research at SWPG to have faulty rotating bands, thus saving the lives of American troops. B-25s were sent from the airport in Hope to the Gulf of Mexico to observe the testing of bombs for tumbling and proper ballistics after being fired. After World War II the city of Hope received the Southwestern Proving Ground Airport, which became Hope Municipal Airport in 1947; the Southwestern Proving Ground Airport Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, is composed of six buildings and five structures, which include the hangar, night landing plant, heating plant, storage building, bomb assembly building, high explosives magazine and concrete runways and hangar apron.
The magazine and bomb assembly building are located on adjacent land under private ownership. The remaining five buildings are located on 750 acres owned by Hope Municipal Airport; the hangar is located to the west of U. S. Highway is surrounded by a concrete apron on all sides; the building is constructed of brick in a restrained Art Deco style on a continuous concrete foundation with a barrel vaulted roof and four corner towers. The interior of the hangar covers a total of 25,000 square feet; the night landing plant is about 40 feet from its southeastern corner. The plant is a simple one-story rectangular brick edifice with a flat roof; the steam heating plant is located east across Airport Road. During the operation of SWPG this building generated steam heat to warm the buildings in the entire complex; the plant houses the Paul W. Klipsch Education Center, the educational component of the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association, Inc. www.klipschmuseum.org The storage building to the south of the steam heating plant is a rectangular vernacular building with a gable roof.
The bomb assembly building is southwest of the hangar and is located on private property within a chain link fence. Bombs were assembled in this building and hauled by truck to Lake Charles, for testing; the high explosives building is located on private property and is south of the bomb assembly building, outside of the fenced in area. Hope Municipal Airport covers an area of 1,575 acres at an elevation of 359 feet above mean sea level, it has two runways with concrete surfaces: 4/22 is 5,560 by 150 feet and 16/34 is 5,501 by 150 feet. For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2010, the airport had 8,000 aircraft operations, an average of 21 per day: 94% general aviation and 6% military. At that time there were 26 aircraft based at this airport: 88.5% single-engine, 11.5% multi-engine.
