Notes
Survey number HAER AR-38
Building/structure dates: 1908 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1956 subsequent work
Significance: Built in 1908, the Wyman Bridge is one of six Parker trusses in the state of Arkansas. With the exception of the 1956 addition of a concrete deck, the Wyman appears basically in its original state. At the time of construction, the contracting Vincennes Bridge Company was still in its early years. The company prospered by making standardized bridges simply and efficiently.
