    Devils Fork-Greers Ferry Lake Bridge

    The destroyed bridge was a truss, but its replacement isn't, so this should be 2 separate entries. One for the bridge that was destroyed by a tornado, another entry for the replacement, plus a third entry for the ferry AHTD ran while the new bridge was being built.

    This bridge is more commonly known as the Edgemont Bridge, connecting Greers Ferry to Edgemont across Greers Ferry Lake.

    The current bridge is also the second bridge at the site. "Rehabilitated" is a gentle word for "replacing entire span after original bridge was destroyed by a tornado."

    For more information, including updates on who built the new bridge, see Page 13 of this Summer 1985 issue of Arkansas Highways, published by the state's transportation department: https://tinyurl.com/y825mol5
