Overall Arkansas Highway 151 exists in three different parts on opposite ends of the state. Two segments span a total of 12.4 miles near Blytheville in Mississippi County while a 1.4 mile section follows the Texarkana Loop from State Line Avenue to Interstate 49 as an implied extension of Loop 151 from Texas. The Texarkana portion of AR 151 was designated in May 2013 in place of AR 245.

Arkansas 151 East
Loop 151 transitions to AR 151 as the freeway passes under State Line Avenue into the Natural State. Unmarked, AR 151 continues another 1.4 miles to Interstate 49. 05/20/14
AR 151 concludes in one mile as I-49 joins the Texarkana belt line. Exit 1 for I-49 south takes motorists toward Shreveport, Louisiana lying 69.2 miles away. The succeeding ramp (Exit 29) joins U.S. 71 north to Downtown Texarkana. 05/20/14
The Texarkana Loop carries Interstate 49 along the east side of Texarkana to I-30 and back to U.S. 71 north of the city. Little Rock is reached via I-30 east while U.S. 71 will take travelers north to Fort Smith. 05/20/14
Two lanes depart for Interstate 49 south at Exit 1. I-49 extends from Shreveport to Alexandria and Lafayette in southern Louisiana. 05/20/14
U.S. 71 (East Street) parallels I-49 from Louisiana north to Texarkana. The U.S. highway briefly combines with U.S. 67/82 in Downtown before continuing north along State Line Avenue toward Ashdown. 05/20/14
AR 151 transitions to Interstate 49 beyond the departure ramp for U.S. 71 (East Street) into Texarkana. I-49 continues another 13 miles to U.S. 71 north of Texarkana. 05/20/14
Arkansas 151 West
AR 151 extends 1.4 mile west from I-49 to State Line Avenue and the Texas border. 05/20/14
Crossing over Line Ferry Road, the freeway will encounter State Line Avenue in 0.75 miles at the Arkansas/Texas border. 05/20/14
An auxiliary lane will depart for State Line Avenue one half mile ahead. The local arterial travels south to Hoot Plant Road and north toward Downtown Texarkana. U.S. 71 will join State Line Avenue for its trek north toward Ashdown. 05/20/14
State Line Avenue straddles the Arkansas/Texas state line for most of its trip to Downtown Texarkana and north along U.S. 71. The local arterial dips solely into Texas on its final approach to 3rd and 4th Streets. Use 3rd Street east to reconnect with State Line Avenue north. 05/20/14
Unsigned Arkansas 151 reaches the diamond interchange with State Line Avenue. Continue along the Texarkana loop to reach U.S. 59 to Houston. U.S. 59 and Interstate 369 join the loop as it turns north toward Interstate 30 to Dallas. 05/20/14
Arkansas 151 gives way to Texas Loop 151 as the freeway passes under State Line Avenue into the Lone Star state. Texas Loop 151 goes for only 3.5 miles before its end at U.S. 59 and Interstate 369 and sees two additional exits with Farm to Market Road 558 (Buchanan Road) and FM 3527 (Leopard Drive). 05/20/14
