Additionally in a low area in the road down hills in both directions east past the tree there is a unfinished development where a officer sits and does radar enforcement in both directions. Lastly at night when traveling west of Wallis from 112 officers sit blacked out on the grass on the left side of the road. Jurisdiction of some parts of the road is in Rogers so if you get a ticket see if your location was in Cave Springs.
