Arkansas Highway 224 (AR 224, Hwy. 224) is a designation for two east–west state highways in Jackson County, Arkansas. A northern route of 8.25 miles (13.28 km) runs east from Highway 367 to the city limits of Swifton.[2] A second route of 8.26 miles (13.29 km) begins at US Route 67 (US 67) and runs to Highway 14 after serving as a frontage road of US 67.[2]

Route description[edit]

Tuckerman to Swifton[edit]

Highway 224 begins at Highway 367 near Tuckerman and runs east. The route turns north and crosses over Highway 226 and a temporary designation of US 67 until the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) completes a new freeway alignment for US 67.[3] Slightly north of this alignment, the route terminates at the Swifton south city limits. The average daily traffic counts from the AHTD for 2010 show that a maximum of about 610 vehicles per day (VPD) use the portion near Swifton, with the count dropping to 180 VPD for portions further south.[1]

US 67 to Highway 14[edit]

Highway 224 begins at an exit along US 67 and runs east through Ingleside. The route turns north to run along US 67 as a frontage road until it terminates at Highway 14. The terminus is very near another exit along US 67 south of Newport.[2] Traffic counts from the AHTD in 2010 indicate that the average daily traffic volume on this segment of Highway 101 is at a maximum of 150 VPD near the US 67/AR 14 terminus and decreases as you travel further south.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Jackson County.
