There is more than ONE of these arch bridges on this road. Appear to be identical in construction.

The NPS has been conducting research on some of Arkansas' bridges this summer and it turns out that this bridge was built by a private individual in 1892 and was called the Marble Arch Bridge. I will send more information as we get it.
