Arkansas Highway 45 is a highway along the western edge of Arkansas. Like many Arkansas highways, it exists in multiple disparate sections; in Highway 45’s case, there are three disconnected sections bearing the same number. One section is in Sebastian County, serving the area south of Fort Smith. Another is in western Washington County. A third section links Fayetteville to Madison County.
Our replica of the 1961 Arkansas Highway 45 sign lets you step back in time and experience the bygone days of classic Arkansas route signage. The 1961 issue was the last style that used the Arkansas-shaped “cutout” blank. It featured a divider bar across northern part of the state map, with “ARKANSAS” above it and the route number below. This style of sign used the same FHWA Series fonts that are in use today. Original signs like this do circulate on the collector’s market, but finding one with the “45” route number specifically can be tricky. Even if you come across one, it’s likely to cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. With our replicas, you can get the exact sign you want without the time and expense of tracking down an original.
Our Arkansas Highway 45 sign is flat printed right here in the USA on heavy 14-gauge steel. It has a glossy, non-reflective finish that will serve you well for years to come, indoors or outdoors. We offer this sign in its original size of 16 in. × 14 in. We also offer a smaller 12 in. × 10½ in. version, as well as scaled-up 24 in. × 21 in. and 36 in. × 31½ in. versions. Like all of our signs, this one includes two convenient pre-drilled mounting holes. (Looking for a sign like this with another number? Or in an older or newer style? Perhaps you’d like a classic state route shield from some other state? We can help! Just contact Jake to place your custom order.)
