Clark is correct, this clearly is NOT a concrete arch bridge.

The tops of columns are sometimes flared to reduce the stress concentration at the corner. This looks like a slab resting on flared columns.

Iíve never seen one like this. It doesnít look like a true arch, but what is it? A slab with decorative piers?
