WINSLOW ó Work will begin next month to pave the last stretch of gravel highway in Arkansas.

The 3.87-mile segment of Arkansas 220 goes from Devilís Den State Park south about a mile into Crawford County.

Arkansas has 16,411 miles of highways.

ďPaving these last few miles is highly symbolic for a state which has traditionally had a reputation as hopelessly backward,Ē said Tom Dillard, an Arkansas historian.

Dillard cited the story of the Arkansas Traveler and the 1903 book On a Slow Train Through Arkansaw, which became the best-selling joke book in American history.

Technically, all highways were paved and the Highway Dept. inherited this road from the Nat'l Forestry Service.
