Significance: The Saline River Bridge is one of only ten unaltered, reinforced concrete, open-spandrel, deck arch bridges currently surviving in Arkansas. Constructed as part of a six bridge improvement project on the Benton-Malvern Road beginning two miles west of Benton, it reflects the AHTD's substantial influence in reinforced concrete bridge design and construction in Arkansas.
