Bridge built at this location in 1928 as Arkansas 22 and was widened in 1958. The 1958 work of making the bridge wider can be seen underneath the bridge today. This bridge is just one of several bridges of this style built on the new Arkansas 22 that officially opened in 1929 and ran from Fort Smith, Arkansas east to Dardanelle, Arkansas and connected with the newly built Arkansas River Bridge at Dardanelle. Several of these bridges constructed also consisted of pony bridges in the middle of them that were taken out in 1958 when the bridges were widened.
