Highway 13 (AR 13, Ark. 13 and Hwy. 13) is a designation for three state highways in the central part of the U.S. state of Arkansas. The longest segment of 54.58 miles (87.84 km) travels from U.S. Route 79 (US 79) in Humphrey to Campground Road east of Beebe.[1][2] There exists two short segments in White County; one traveling 5.03 miles (8.10 km) from Highway 367 in McRae to Highway 267 and the other traveling 6.13 miles (9.87 km) from Highway 367 in Judsonia to Highway 258.[3]

The northern part of Highway 13 was replaced by Highway 81. Then, in 1989, when US 425 was commissioned, it replaced the entire route of Highway 13.

Route description[edit]

Beebe to Humphrey[edit]

Highway 13 starts east of Beebe and heads south to Highway 38 at Hickory Plains, and a crossing of both I-40 and US 70 in Carlisle. The route continues south to US 167 in Humnoke and to US 63/US 79 at Humphrey, where the route terminates.

McRae to Highway 267[edit]

The route begins in McRae at Highway 367 and runs north across US 64/US 67/US 167, which are concurrent. Highway 13 is Exit 35 on the converged highways. The route heads north to terminate at Highway 267 southwest of Searcy.

Judsonia to Highway 258[edit]

The route begins at Highway 367 near Friendly Acres Park and runs west as Missile Base Road. Highway 13 meets US 64/US 67/US 167 at a grade-separated interchange north of Judsonia. After this bridging, AR 13 turns north to intersect Highway 157 before terminating at Highway 258 near the Emmett Miller House.

History[edit]

Highway 13 was one of the original 1926 state highways. The route ran about 90 miles (140 km) from U.S. Route 65 south of Pine Bluff to the Louisiana state line, changing to Louisiana 139. The northern portion of the route was replaced by Highway 81, with the entire routing being replaced by U.S. Route 425 when it was commissioned in 1989.
