Route description


Highway 228 begins state maintenance at Lawrence County Road 534. It runs east through the Clover Bend Historic District to Minturn, where it ends at US 67.[3]

Highway 91 to Light

Highway 228 runs diagonally from southwest to northeast, beginning at Highway 91. The route runs northeast, serving as the northern terminus of Highway 349 before entering Sedgwick where it meets US 63. Highway 228 overlaps US 63 briefly before turning northeast into Greene County.[3] It continues northeast to terminate at US 412 at Light.[4]


Highway 228 was created by the Arkansas State Highway Commission on July 10, 1957, between Clover Bend and Minturn.[1] A second route was created between Sedgwick and Light April 24, 1963.[5] The Arkansas General Assembly passed Act 9 of 1973, which directed county judges and legislators to designate up to 12 miles (19 km) of county roads as state highways in each county.[6] Highway 228 was extended west to Highway 91 on May 23, 1973.[7]
