Written by J Randall Houp

Plaque on east end of bridge reads, "Huddleston Creek; T.H. Clay & Co., contractor; Arkansas State Highway Commission, Dwight H. Blackwood, chairman, C.S. Christian, engineer, 1929." Very interesting older bridge with an all wood pedestrian walkway attached to the north side of bridge at a later date.
