Route description[edit]

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.

History[edit]

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.
