Interstate 55 Arkansas

Interstate 55 is a major north-south interstate which runs along the Mississippi River for most of its length. It begins in La Place, Louisiana at Interstate 10 and ends at U.S. 41/Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, Illinois. It travels through Jackson, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; St. Louis, Missouri; Springfield, Illinois; and Chicago, Illinois on its trek throughout the central United States. On the third day of the Bayous & Blues Roadtrip I drove Interstate 55 from La Place, Louisiana to West Memphis, Arkansas.
