Brief Note: 

Written by J Randall Houp

Found this rather simple bridge really quite by accident. Had eaten at the Catalpa Cafe and saw this bridge as we were leaving. By crossing this bridge you will continue east on a dirt forestry road and end up at Arkansas 21. Bridge in good condition, but just looks rough by sitting where it does. Most of the road leading to this bridge is Arkansas 215 and is paved all the way to the bridge.
