Cache River AR 135 Bridge
Posted July 12, 2008, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Visited and photographed this bridge on Wednesday, July 9, 2008. Found this bridge to be in excellent condition for having been built in 1929. Easy to locate and easy to photograph at several angles.
