U.S. Highway 65
U.S. Highway 65 is a north-south United States highway stretching from Albert Lea, Minnesota to Natchez, Mississippi. Parts of its modern route in Iowa and historic route in Minnesota follow the old Jefferson Highway.
As of 2004, the highway's northern terminus is in Albert Lea, Minnesota, merging into Interstate 35 just south of Interstate 90. Its southern terminus is at Natchez, Mississippi at an intersection with U.S. Highway 61.
Through central Arkansas, 65 follows roads close to or along Interstate 40 between Conway and Little Rock. In 1999, the 46 mile (74 km) section of U.S. 65 between Little Rock and Pine Bluff was designated Interstate 530.
