Route description[edit]

AR 18 begins at AR 69 near Jacksonport. Brief concurrencies begins with AR 17 and US 67 in Newport, and Arkansas Highway 18S leads to Newport Municipal Airport as AR 18 continues east. The route runs east to AR 37 in Grubbs before turning north at Uno to AR 226 in Cash. AR 18 joins AR 91 and becomes King's Highway.

AR 18/AR 91 run together with US 63 into Jonesboro. AR 18 breaks and runs as Highland Dr., meeting US 49/AR 1. After Jonesboro, AR 18 meets AR 158 and AR 135 in Lake City.

The route continues east to cross over Interstate 55 (exit 67) in a frontage road interchange. AR 18 and AR 312 meet briefly south of the Blytheville Municipal Airport.
