the old bridge was a train bridge from the 1930's
There was no old bridge. One had to go to Ozark or Dardanelle/Russellville to cross the Arkansas River before this bridge was built.
Say I lived in Morrison Bluff (south bank) before the bridge was built. The trip to Clarksville would be 46 miles via Ozark or 61 via Russellville instead of the 9 miles it is today.
i am interested in when the bridge was built,and what did the old bridge look like. also was the old bridge as long as the new one is....
