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.
MS 304 formerly consisted of two segments:
- A travel route, which ran from U.S. Highway 61 in Tunica Resorts (Tunica County) east to Interstate 55 in Hernando (DeSoto County).
- A scenic route, which began at Interstate 55 in Coldwater, runs west then north to Arkabutla Lake and Eudora, then east along the MS 304 travel route to its former terminus at I-55 in Hernando.
