Brief note: 

Written by J Randall Houp

Originally built by the W.P.A. and later widened by Logan County in
1976. The rock piers are a good indication of the quality work done. The bridge remains in good condition today. Note: Fletcher Branch Creek flows east and just after the bridge pours into Sugar Creek. Not to be confused with Fletcher Creek that flows north, northeast and goes under Arkansas 23 and empties into the Petit Jean River just east of the Carolan Bridge.
