Sturgis Road Bridge
Posted October 31, 2006, by charles bowden (mtmn96 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

so happy to see this bridge preserved, but it would have been better with wooden floor. i remember when they moved this bridge, a local construction company donated a crane to move it and the story was on the little rock news
