Apple Road Bridge
Posted July 12, 2008, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Visited and photographed this ornate looking bridge on Tuesday, July 8, 2008. Bridge in need of general repair and maintainence. Before and after this bridge can be found 2 old cement relics constructed in the early 1930s. Fun bridge to photograph because of its ornate railing and with it being on a dirt road. Not too many bridges like it left in Arkansas. DUST..BUGS..HEAT..SUN..Yuk!!!
