Arkansas Roads - AR 300

AR 300 (Maumelle River Bridge)

The old highway, seen here NB, splits off past Pinnacle Mountain and comes rather suddenly upon an old truss bridge spanning the old Maumelle River. Since then, not only has AR 300 been rerouted onto a more stable structure, but the Maumelle River has also been rerouted as the result of a dam to the west. Take a look at the water in these photos - it's green and fairly stagnant, which rivers aren't.

Finishing the walk across.

Standing to the east of the northern abutment and rotating from north to south.

Heading back SB to the modern road.
