Route description[edit]

Highway 345 in Cotter

Western segment[edit]

AR 345 begins at the intersection of US 62 BUS, Combs Avenue, and Cotter Road in Cotter. It first heads south on Cotter Road crossing a railroad at-grade. It runs northeast through the southern part of Cotter paralleling the White River before zig-zaging its way north when it enters Gassville and terminates at US 62/US 412.

Eastern segment[edit]

The other segment of AR 345 begins at the intersection of Lakeview Drive and US 62/US 412. It heads north for about 0.33 miles (0.53 km) on Lakeview Drive before turning east onto Vine Street and terminating at AR 126.


The short section in Gassville was created to serve an industrial area on May 28, 1969, initially only running due north as Lakeview Drive.[1] The route was extended east from the Mar-Bax shirt factory along Vine Street to Highway 126 on July 28, 1977.[3] The second segment was created on May 23, 1973 pursuant to Act 9 of 1973 by the Arkansas General Assembly.[4] The act directed county judges and legislators to designate up to 12 miles (19 km) of county roads as state highways in each county.[5]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Baxter County.
