The route continues to Shirley from Clinton with AR 16, where it is crossed by AR 110.[7] Entering Stone County, AR 9 runs north for several miles before meeting AR 66 in Mountain View. It exits town northbound with AR 5 and AR 16.[8] AR 9 arrows east in Izard County, passing AR 933, a former alignment of AR 9. The route mostly follows the White River in eastern Izard County. AR 9 detaches a spur route and meets AR 69 in Melbourne. The route then meets AR 56 in Brockwell before leaving the county.[9] The route enters its final county, meeting AR 395 before meeting US 62/US 412 and US 62 BUS in Salem. The route trails northeast to Mammoth Spring, where it meets US 63 and terminates, near the Missouri state line.[2]
