Jefferson street viaduct As seen from 64 hwy bridge
This is much more than just a "girder" bridge over the RR tracks. This is the whole Van Buren side approach to the old Ft. Smith-Van Buren Free Bridge across the Arkansas river, now used as an access road to the Van Buren Marina. Originally called the Iron Mountain Viaduct, and carrying trolley tracks, it was replaced and enlarged to carry vehicular traffic.
