Highway 4 (AR 4, Ark. 4, and Hwy. 4) is a designation for two state highways in Arkansas. The western segment of 2.99 miles (4.81 km) runs from SH-4 at the Oklahoma state line and terminates in Cove. An eastern segment of 22.49 miles (36.19 km) begins at U.S. Route 278 (US 278) in McGehee and heads east to Arkansas City then north to Highway 1 before terminating. The two routes were formerly connected until a portion of approximately 230 miles (370 km) was redesignated US 278 in 1998. The eastern segment is part of the Great River Road.
Oklahoma to Cove
The route enters Arkansas as Oklahoma State Highway 4 and runs east to Cove. The route then meets US 59/US 71 and ends. AR 4 formerly continued along US 59/US 71 south to Wickes, then across the state along present US 278.
McGehee to Rowher
Highway 4 begins east of McGehee at US 65/US 165/US 278. The route winds east past the Delta Country Club and Trippe Holly Grove Cemetery before curving due east toward Arkansas City. The route runs east to Arkansas City. At Arkansas City, the route has its only spur route, which serves the historic part of town, while AR 4 turns north. The highway runs along the Mississippi River briefly before terminating at AR 1.
