Big Slough Ditch AR 34 Bridge
Posted July 11, 2008, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Found this bridge in excellent condition and easy to photograph from several angles. Was surprised to see all the bridges in northeast Arkansas use creosote post and wood for pilings and piers.
