Route description[edit]

Highway 143 begins at US 62 and Highway 980 north of the Carroll County Airport. The route runs north through a rural area of the Ozarks, only passing two unincorporated communities: Grandview and Pleasant Ridge. Highway 143 winds toward the Missouri state line, where the route continues as Supplemental Route H, which runs north to Missouri Route 86.[3]

History[edit]

The original Highway 143 was created in 1931 from Highway 18 in Black Oak south to US 63 southeast of Tyronza Township.[4] This route became part of Highway 135 in 1955. The current Highway 143 was created by the Arkansas State Highway Commission on June 23, 1965.[1] The route was paved from US 62 to Grandview in 1974, with the remainder being bituminous surface/gravel.[5] The entire routing was paved by 1988.[2]
