Route description[edit]

Atkins[edit]

The route begins at AR 105 at Gold Hill and loops west around Lake Atkins through Bells Chapel. AR 324 terminates at AR 105 in south Atkins.

Perry County[edit]

Highway 324 serves as a connector route between Highway 155 south of Petit Jean State Park and Highway 10 near Adona, a major east-west route in the region.

Lake Sylvia Recreation Area[edit]

Highway 324 serves as a connector route to connect Lake Sylvia Recreational Area in the Ouachita National Forest to the state highway system.

History[edit]

The Arkansas State Highway Commission created Highway 324 by designating a county road between Atkins and Galla Rock as a state highway on June 23, 1965.[4] The sections in Perry County were added to the state highway system on April 24, 1973.[5][6] The segment in Russellville was added to the state highway system on January 30, 1986 following a study of north-south traffic flow in the city. The roadway was created to connect the industrial area to the state highway system under a policy to provide connectivity between industrial areas and the state highway system.[7]
