Highway 118 (AR 118, Ark. 118, and Hwy. 118) is a designation for two state highways in the Upper Arkansas Delta. One route of 41.43 miles (66.68 km) begins at US Highway 64 (US 64) and Highway 149 east to Mississippi County Road 495 (CR 495) near the Mississippi River levee. A second route of 4.29 miles (6.90 km) runs from US 70/US 79 in West Memphis to US 64 in Marion. Both routes are maintained by the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD).
Earle to Joiner
Highway 118 begins at US 64 in the northeast corner of Earle within Crittenden County in the Arkansas Delta. The route runs northeast to Heafer, where it has an intersection with Highway 42 before curving due north and running as a section line road and entering Poinsett County.
Entering Poinsett County, Highway 118 runs north to Highway 322, which serves as a frontage road for Interstate 555/US 63 in southern Tyronza. Highway 118 meets I-555/US 63 at an exit before entering downtown Tyronza. The highway passes three historic properties and continues north before turning due east and entering Mississippi County.
Now heading west, AR 118 meets AR 135, AR 308, and AR 77 before crossing Interstate 55. After I-55, AR meets US 61 in Joiner. The route continues east to Black Cat, the Mississippi River and Tennessee.
West Helena to Marion
Highway 118 begins at US 70 in West Memphis near Mid-South Community College. The route heads north to an interchange with Interstate 40 (I-40), as well as unsigned US 63 and US 79. The highway continues north to Marion, running along the western city limits before an intersection with US 64.
