Arkansas Weigh Stations Truck Scales

Arkansas (along with Louisianna and Missouri)used to have some terrible roads. Truckers would jump out into the left lane to try and smooth the ride out (you will see signs on the freeway now saying that this is prohibited). The freeway was in sections and each section would cause the truck to jump- it was a constantly bumpy ride. Truckers would joke that they needed to pull over at the state line to tie down their belongings to keep them from banging around. In recent years, Arkansas has fixed a lot of the roadways.

Arkansas only requires commercial vehicles to cross their scales. This means rental trucks are off the hook- but the officers in the weigh station have no way of knowing who is using a rental truck for commercial purposes and who is using one for personal use. So, if the officer sees a rental truck drive past the scale, the officer may choose to chase the truck down and make sure it’s not a commercial vehicle in disguise. Arkansas DOT suggests that all rental trucks go ahead and pull into the weigh stations to avoid a roadside check.

PrePass trucks that receive a green light in Arkansas must still enter an open weigh station if they are pulling an oversize/overweight load (even permitted loads) or placarded hazmat or hazwaste load.

The Arkansas fuel tax rate is $0.228 per gallong of diesel.

(West Memphis) – I 40 wb Arkansas Weigh Station Truck Scales
If you cross the border from Tennessee to Arkansas on I 40, you will cross this scale. There are no exits between the bridge over the river and the weigh station. This location has PrePass but does not have any visible weigh-in-motion sensors in the road.

The West Memphis west bound weigh station used to be further west. This “newer” location was built and appeared to be useable long before they ever started using it- there were rumors among the truckers that the weigh station was sinking. Whatever the opening delay was, the scale in full use now. Don’t expect it to be closed at night, on weekends or on holidays. Exit 280 has Petro, Pilot, Flying J west of the West Memphis truck scales.

If you cross the border from Tennessee to Arkansas, you have one chance to turn around before the weigh station- and you had better make sure you turn left to go back east on I 40- going the wrong way off the exit before the scale puts you on a dead end road that goes around just to the backside of the truck scale and then curves around a 180 degree curve under the interstate before it comes to a dead end.
