Mississippi Highway 304 (MS 304) is state highway in the northwestern part of the U.S. state of Mississippi. It is mostly concurrent with Interstate 69 (I-69) and Interstate 269 (I-269).

Route description[edit]

MS 304 begins at a trumpet interchange with US 61 east of Tunica Resorts in the floodplain of the Mississippi River. The four-lane freeway has a half-diamond interchange with MS 3 that allows access to and from the east. MS 304 crosses over a rail line and has a partial interchange with a stub of I-69 that leads to MS 713 at Banks; the interchange includes a flyover from the westbound direction of the freeway. Immediately to the east of the interchange, I-69/MS 304 leaves the Mississippi River floodplain. The freeway has diamond interchanges with MS 301, Fogg Road, and Tulane Road. I-69/MS 304 crosses another rail line and passes over US 51 with no access just west of the state highway's terminus at I-55 on the northern end of Hernando, where I-69 joins I-55 heading north toward Memphis. The highways meet at a full cloverleaf interchange and then MS 304 runs east concurrent with Interstate 269 to the Tennessee state line.

History[edit]

MS 304 formerly consisted of two segments:
