I found this old beauty back in 2007 and have been back 3 more times since. Bridge was originally built by Arkansas Southwestern Railroad in February 1902 and has gone through several different owners since then. To me, this is the most beautiful all wood railroad bridge in Arkansas because of its unusual design. I named this bridge, The Dinosaur Backbone, because of its unique style and design. Before it was closed I had the opportunity to drive across it several times just for the fun of it. When going up either side all you could see was nothing but sky until you level off at the top briefly. This bridge sits on the same railroad famous for the "Gurdon Light". One of two bridges built on this railroad of this style. The 2nd one has since been torn down at Rosboro, Arkansas in northeast Pike County. Unfortunately, this bridge and the old historic railroad originally founded in 1885 doesn't have much time left. Removal of rails and ties are scheduled some time this year. Whether the old bridge will be left is not known at this time. Note: A lot of private property next to bridge.
