Route description[edit]

Crows to Mammoth Spring[edit]

Highway 9 runs north in Morrilton

AR 9 begins at Crows and runs north, with AR 298 shooting east from the route.[4] Continuing north into Perry County, AR 9 meets AR 10 at Williams Junction with AR 216 detaching near Harris Rake. The route next meets AR 60 in Perryville before entering Conway County.[5] The route runs with AR 113 and AR 247 briefly south of Morrilton before meeting US 64 and I-40. AR 9 has a spur and business route in Morrilton. AR 915 strays from AR 9 near Overcup Lake. AR 9 also runs with AR 92 from Birdtown to Center Ridge in Conway County.[6] AR 9 concurs with US 65 from Choctaw to Clinton. The route continues to Shirley from Clinton with AR 16, where it is crossed by AR 110.[7] Entering Stone County, AR 9 runs north for several miles before meeting AR 66 in Mountain View. It exits town northbound with AR 5 and AR 16.[8] AR 9 arrows east in Izard County, passing AR 933, a former alignment of AR 9. The route mostly follows the White River in eastern Izard County. AR 9 detaches a spur route and meets AR 69 in Melbourne. The route then meets AR 56 in Brockwell before leaving the county.[9] The route enters its final county, meeting AR 395 before meeting US 62/US 412 and US 62 BUS in Salem. The route trails northeast to Mammoth Spring, where it meets US 63 and terminates, near the Missouri state line.[2]

Eagle Mills to Malvern[edit]

Highway 9 begins at US 67 in Malvern and heads south through Lono, Tulip, and Princeton before heading slightly west.[10] The route then passes through Holly Springs and past numerous quarries before terminating at US 79 at Eagle Mills.[11]
