Highway 299 (AR 299, Ark. 299, and Hwy. 299) is a north–south state highway in Arkansas. The route of 26.40 miles (42.49 km) runs from Interstate 30 to AR 24 in White Oak Lake State Park.[2] The route is two–lane, undivided.[1]

Route description[edit]

Highway 299 begins at Interstate 30 in Hemsptead County.[3] The route runs south to intersect Highway 174 before turning east toward Emmet. In Emmet the route has a 0.1 miles (0.16 km) overlap with US 67 before continuing east into Nevada County. The route has a short concurrency with Highway 53 and then US 371 near Laneburg. East of this overlap the route serves as a terminus for Highway 372 and later Highway 200 before entering White Oak Lake State Park. After an intersection with Highway 387 the route terminates at Highway 24.[2] The route was most recently paved when a segment in Nevada County was resurfaced 1975, with all portions last receiving paving prior to that project.[1]
