By 1932, it was extended south along what was part of SD 47 to Wheeler. By 1936, SD 45 was truncated at Kimball, at US 16, as US 281 supplanted the SD 45 designation to the south. In the early 1950s, when US 281 was relocated several miles to the east, SD 45 was extended back south to SD 50.
The north end of the route has remained in its current configuration since 1936.
