Thank you for the kind words, Gentlemen! It helps having something so beautiful to take a picture of!
That would be the Cotter Railroad Bridge
In the Streetview, I see there is a railroad swing bridge just north of this bridge; the swing span indicates that the White River was navigable at one point. This view points up one of the problems with trying to maintain navigation on a shallow river with a shifting channel - the swing span is currently located over a mid-channel island!
Indeed it is Mr. Vance! I have been impressed with many of Lisa's photos.
I think even Conde B. McCullough would have been impressed with this beautiful span!
The latest picture (#20) is beautiful.
Blueprints for this bridge are online at http://www.arkansashighways.com/historic_bridge/State%20Highway%20Bridge%20Plans/%2800702%29%20Cotter%20Bridge.pdf
Visited this bridge at 4:40 pm on 2 March 2007. Good photos can be taken from both downstream sides. The west bank has a dead end road that loops under the bridge and past several residences. The east bank has a large parking area with boat ramps, pavilion and picnic sites. Good overall pictures from a distance can also be taken at the overlook on Hwy 62. An old gutted restaurant-like building sits right at the west abuttment. The railroad bridge can be photographed best from the overlook and from the east bank park. Bridge looks to be fairly clean & tidy.
Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.
Shows some photos of the bridge under construction.
