Arkansas Highway 220 is a designation for two state highways in west Arkansas. The southern segment of 7.89 miles (12.70 km) runs from Oklahoma State Highway 101 near Uniontown to AR 59.[1][2] A northern segment of 17.04 miles (27.42 km) runs from AR 59 north to AR 170 in Devil's Den State Park.[3] The route is not paved within Devil's Den State Park, and was the only Arkansas state highway that remains unpaved until a January 2016 announcement that paving would begin.[4]
