Route description

Highway 357 begins at Highway 50 near Greasy Corner and runs north through many unincorporated communities. The route passes through Davis, Stump City, Jonquil and Willow Bend. Further north the route intersects US 70 and terminates. US 70 is essentially a frontage road to Interstate 40 in this area.[3]

History

The route was designated by the Arkansas State Highway Commission on July 10, 1957, during a period of expansion in the state highway system.[1] The Arkansas General Assembly passed the Act 148 of 1957, the Milum Road Act, creating 10–12 miles (16–19 km) of new state highways in each county.[4]
