Notes
Survey number HAER AR-36
Building/structure dates: 1936 initial construction
Significance: This bridge is one of eight known masonry arch bridges identified in Arkansas. It is the only known bridge constructed under the authority of the United States Resettlement Administration in the state. It was built as part of the larger Spring Lake recreation project, which included a massive stone dam creating Spring Lake, and numerous camping facilities. The Spring Lake Bridge exhibits high quality craftsmanship and significant design details not seen in other Arkansas stone arch bridges. These details include roughly squared, coursed masonry, dressed springers and keystones, stone paving, and an inscribed date stone.
