100 Year Old Historic Arkansas Bridge to be Taken Down & Given New Life
Bridges are an amazing feat and for obvious reasons very useful. There is a bridge in Arkansas that is over 100 years old and it will be taken down soon but it's not going away forever.
The bridge is in beautiful Mulberry Arkansas. If you've been in this area then you know how beautiful it is and also know about the Mulberry Bridge that crosses the Mulberry River. So many people over the years have enjoyed summers cooling off in the river and up in the mountains in this area of Arkansas.
The one-lane bridge known as the Silver Bridge was built back in 1912 and is historic according to a report on 40/29 news because it might be one of the last bridges of its kind in the state of Arkansas. This type of bridge is known as a Pratt Truss Bridge.
The bridge will come down in mid-September and a new wider bridge will take its place. You can see how narrow this bridge was when it was open in the video below. Yikes!
But here is the cool thing. The town of Mulberry doesn't want to get rid its history and the history of this bridge so it will have a new home in the town's park and it will be a footbridge where people will be able to enjoy the history of it always.
