they cleared the power lines right next to it. The bridge is now kind of visible from the road.

From google maps, I believe this bridge is now lost. I am going to check out some time this week :(

This bridge is right down the street from my home. The man above is correct it was abandoned during a realignment of highway 95. There is a no trespassing sign however,i visit this bridge often and only once has anyone said anything. The owners of a home very near it came to make sure there was no trouble being caused. They were very nice once i explained that no i just really like old bridges :) here are a few pics of it i have many don't mind me looking a bit silly in them.

I forgot to mention that there is "No Treaspassing" sign hidden and mostly grown over. However, I didn't see anyone out there while I was looking around.

I found this bridge several weeks ago while working in Morrilton. While I was there, I decided to take pictures. Most maps and GPS units show Creek Road to be open...while the road is actually a dead end. Google Earth even shows the bridge to be open. I've talked to several locals in the town and most have never heard of it. However, one fellow there claims that it was abandoned 25-30 years ago when Highway 95 was updated. It is extremely easy to locate as well.
