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.
