Highway 89 (AR 89, Ark. 89, and Hwy. 89) is a highway in the central part of the U.S. state of Arkansas.

Route description

AR 89's southern terminus is at an intersection with U.S. Highway 70 (US 70) near the western end of Lonoke. From there, it runs seven miles (11 km) north and west to Furlow, intersecting AR 15 and AR 294, then 8+12 miles (13.7 km) miles north to AR 367 at Cabot, the largest city through which the highway runs. Within Cabot, it serves as a portion of two major commercial thoroughfares—first as South Pine Street from city limits into downtown, then turning westward as West Main Street. From Cabot, it runs approximately six miles (9.7 km) west crossing AR 5 at the PulaskiLonoke county line before ending at AR 107 eight miles (13 km) south of Vilonia.

It resumes again 3+12 miles (5.6 km) south as Pulaski County Road 89 running west and north 4+12 miles (7.2 km) to the Faulkner County line where it becomes a state highway again. It continues west another 11 miles (18 km) and intersects AR 365 one mile (1.6 km) north of Mayflower. From there, it travels south one mile (1.6 km) then turns west again traveling approximately five miles (8.0 km) before continuing as Lollie Road.

Future improvements

Within the Mayflower area, the highway is slated for a significant realignment to include a new overpass over the Union Pacific Railroad line, a $26.3 million project in planning since 1983.[3] A resolution for shared financing of the overpass and realignment — which will also remove concurrency with AR 365 in the city and partially run back into unincorporated Faulkner County — was passed by the Mayflower city council in 2018, entering the city into partnership with the Arkansas Department of Transportation, Faulkner County, and the regional governmental council Metroplan.[4] A groundbreaking for construction of the new pathway was held on May 25, 2021. The project was officially completed as in May 2023,[5] with the highway's prior alignment west of AR 365 expected to be ceded to the City of Mayflower.
