Arkansas Highway 124 is a designation for two state highways in Central Arkansas. The western segment of 72.17 miles (116.15 km) runs from Russellville to Rose Bud.[1][2] An eastern segment of 9.17 miles (14.76 km) runs east in White County from Pangburn to AR 157.[3]

Route description

Russellville to Rose Bud

The route begins at AR 7 in Russellville and runs east across Interstate 40. It continues east to intersect AR 164 in Moreland and AR 105 in Caglesville before entering Conway County.[2] AR 124 winds east and then south in Conway County before forming a concurrency with AR 95.[4] The highway runs east to concur with AR 9 in Center Ridge, becoming AR 92/AR 124 until Springfield. AR 124 briefly enters Faulkner County, where AR 124 intersects and concurs with U.S. Route 65 for 2.2 miles (3.5 km).[5][6] AR 124 enters Cleburne County and has many intersections in Quitman, including AR 25.[7] The highway continues east into White County to AR 36 in Rose Bud, where it terminates.[3] This route is entirely two-lane,[1] and has an officially designated exception of 0.66 miles (1.06 km) over Arkansas Highway 25 in Cleburne County.[8]

Pangburn to Sunnydale

AR 124 begins at AR 110 in Pangburn and runs east. The highway in intersected by Arkansas Highway 305, and a short concurrency forms. The highway runs further east to intersect AR 157 in Sunnydale, where it terminates. It is entirely two-lane and undivided.[1]

History

The route was added to the state highway system in 1927, a year after Arkansas first numbered its highways.[9] The route ran from Russellville to Caglesville and was an unimproved road. The following year, AR 124 was extended to Arkansas Highway 95 in Conway County.[10] At this time, AR 124 from Russellville to Caglesville was graded, but the extension was not. In 1933, the route was shortened, running only from Russellville to Appleton (entirely in Pope County).[11] By 1926, the unimproved segment from Appleton to AR 95 was again added to AR 124. The routing remained unchanged until 1953, when the route was extended along its modern alignment.[12]
