Highway 86 (AR 86, Ark. 86, and Hwy. 86) is a mostly north–south highway in central Arkansas. Its southern terminus is at an intersection with U.S. Route 63 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Slovak. 1-mile (1.6 km) west of Slovak, it turns north at Highway 343 and continues north and west until it intersects U.S. Highway 70 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Carlisle. North of U.S. 70, it continues for 4 miles (6.4 km) as Anderson Road[3] before again becoming a state highway continuing east and north for 13 miles (21 km) before ending at Highway 38 5 miles (8.0 km) east of Hickory Plains.[b]

History[edit]

Highway 87 was created between Holly Grove and the current eastern terminus at Highway 20[c] on April 12, 1940.[1] A second segment was created in 1953 between Slovak and Highway 11[d] in Prairie County. The route was extended over Highway 11 through Tollville on July 10, 1957[6] and east to Highway 33 on June 29, 1960.[7] On April 24, 1963, both segments were extended westward, with the Prairie County section adding 7 miles (11 km) west of Slovak, and the Monroe County section extended northwest from Holly Grove to Highway 241[e] north of Clarendon.[9] On June 23, 1965, the Prairie County section was extended north to the current western terminus at Screeton,[10] and the third section of Highway 86 was designated between Hayley and a county road near Wattensaw Bayou.[11]

The northern 0.7 miles (1.1 km) of the Monroe County route was deleted in a swap to add length to Highway 146 on April 27, 1971, leaving the route to terminate at the current county road intersection.[12]

When the Arkansas General Assembly passed Act 9 of 1973, county judges and legislators were directed to designate up to 12 miles (19 km) of county roads as state highways in each county.[13] In accordance with the Act, Highway 86 was extended southerly on April 5, 1973.[14]
