Point Remove Creek AR 113 Bridge

Visited this bridge on 7 Nov 2006 at 12:30 pm. This bridge appears to be in excellent serviceable condition and can be photographed from either approach and from the modern replacement 100 yds. upstream. Nice to see an old bridge with a color other than "rust". The deck was covered with fall leaves.

You are right, it's nice to see one of these bridges with a good paint job for a change. That's how I remember these types of bridges being, during the 1960s when we used so many of them in the Chicago area. It's like going back in time to see the great pictures you've given us here. Thanks.
