Arkansas River Bridge
Posted December 1, 2010, by Tony Robison (trobison [at] entzhuffman [dot] com)

I remember going over this bridge with my parents when I was a kid. It seems like they closed it in about 1980. It is so narrow, I remember our mirrors smacking other cars mirrors sometimes when crossing it. Tony Robison
