Arkansas Riverbend: The McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System begins in Oklahoma, cutting all the way across Arkansas through Fort Smith and Little Rock. It links into the Mississippi River at the South-East corner of Arkansas. In a year, the river system will carry over 10 million tons of cargo. (that’s 20 billion lbs.)
Junction Bridge at Night: Now a pedestrian bridge linking Little Rock with North Little Rock, Junction Bridge was built in 1899 to carry train cars across the river. 1984 was the last year it was used for railcars. In 2008, renovations were completed to transform the structure into the United States first and only pedestrian bridge with a lift-span.
