If you want to see a complete, preserved example of a bridge very similar to this one, look at the Bridgehunter listing for the Haggards Ford Bridge one county north in Boone County Arkansas.

If you are able to obtain a picture of this bridge when it was intact, please post it. I am interested in how it was made.

Thanks!

Hey Sir Fred! Great photos of what is left of this bridge. Unfortunately I went there on Monday, July 7, 2008 and with it being the middle of summer everything was grown up. The only thing I got was a photo of the steel cables on the north side. Searching for an old photograph of this bridge and think I know who may have one.
