The bridge that was at 36.389667, -93.659259 looks in Google Earth 2001 imagery to be a multi span through truss. Gone in 2006 imagery.

So no, it's not the swinging bridge, but it may have replaced the swinging bridge.

I found what appears to an abandoned bridge remnant just west of Berryville on old CR 306. Could this be the old swinging bridge?
