US82 Overpass
Posted July 17, 2022, by Barton Jennings (be [dot] jennings3009 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The bridge, built in 1936, is generally known as the Hillsboro Viaduct. It passes over ex-Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific line that connected Little Rock (AR) with Eunice (LA) as part of a plan to build to New Orleans. The track is now owned by the Ouachita Railroad, but is not used. Here is a contractor plate from the bridge.
