Buffalo River Bridge
Posted September 17, 2019, by Tony J Anderson (scout2tony [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge was built very tall to accommodate a planned lake. Fortunately, the dam construction was prevented, and the Buffalo became the first National Scenic River. Even so, there are photos of the river in flood covering the roadway, some 90 feet above the normal river level. 1985, I believe.
