Arkansas Highway 193 (AR 193, Hwy. 193) is a north–south state highway in northeast Arkansas. The route of 17.77 miles (28.60 km) runs from Highway 306 near Caldwell north across US Route 64 (US 64) through rural Cross County to Highway 42 near Hickory Ridge.[2][3] The route has an officially designated exception of 0.49 miles (0.79 km) over Highway 284.[4]

Route description[edit]

AR 193 begins near Caldwell at Highway 306 in northwest St. Francis County.[2] The route continues north to an officially designated exception of 0.49 miles (0.79 km) with Highway 284.[4] After this overlap, the route continues north to a junction with US 64. The route overlaps with US 64 east for 0.9 miles (1.4 km), after which Highway 193 turns north. Highway 193 has a junction with Highway 364 before it terminates at Highway 42 east of Hickory Ridge.[3]

History[edit]

The route was designated a state highway under the jurisdiction of the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) between 1965 and 1966.[5][6] The first segment was only between US 64 and Highway 284, with a northern extension coming in 1967.[7] The route is entirely two–lane undivided most recently paved in 1980.[1]
