Arkansas Highway 331 is a north–south state highway in Pope County, Arkansas. The route runs 5.28 miles (8.50 km) from Arkansas Highway 247 in Pottsville north across Interstate 40 to terminate at the northbound ramps.[2]

Route description[edit]

The route begins at AR 247 in Pottsville, and runs west to the Russellville Regional Airport. The route turns north, intersecting AR 980 before forming a concurrency with US 64. After the concurrency ends, AR 331 continues north to cross over Interstate 40 at exit 84. The route terminates after serving the northbound ramps to I-40. The route continues as Bradley Cove Rd. The route is two-lane undivided south of the US 64 concurrency. Main Street is a five-lane road with a center left turn lane, and AR 331 is four-lane north of US 64.[1]

History[edit]

The route was first added to the state highway system in 1971.[3] The route was only from US 64 to I-40 until 1974, when AR 331 was extended south to the area around the airport.[4] The route was extended again in 1975, across the railroad tracks to AR 274 in Pottsville.[5] The route south of I-40 was repaved in 1994.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

Mile markers reset at concurrencies. The entire route is in Pope County.
