Public roads closed by land owners in Arkansas?

It appears there are some public roads that have gates and/or no trespassing signs posted on them in the Ozarks, Bostons and the Ouachitas.

Is there a State agency to address this or is it up to the individual counties?

The Texans have a thread that is starting to address this;

I can understand a road being closed to the public if it does encroach on private property but I don't think a landowner should be able to close a road just because he owns both sides of the property.

We fought this battle years ago [and won] over navigable streams when some landowners put bob-wire fences across canoe waters.
