Big Creek Ditch AR 349 Bridge
Posted July 11, 2008, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Went to visit this bridge on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 and I am sorry to report that it no longer stands. Its been replaced by what I call a "big-cement ugly". Maybe the Arkansas Highway Department knows if it was moved elsewhere. Hey Robert!!!!
