Notes
Survey number HAER AR-30
Building/structure dates: 1911 initial construction
Significance: The Osage Creek is an excellent Arkansan example of a Pratt through truss bridge. Constructed by an unknown builder in the early twentieth century, its economy of materials and proven structural reliability made the Pratt design a popular choice for many Arkansas county officials. The Osage Creek Bridge is one of fifty-nine historic Pratt through truss bridges currently surviving in Arkansas. Its intact lattice guardrail is unique and rarely survives on other Arkansas examples.
