Arkansas Department of Transportation—Broadway Bridge over Arkansas River

Vote NowThe Broadway Bridge on Highway 70 across the Arkansas River served as one of the primary structures for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists traveling between Little Rock and North Little Rock for almost a century. By 2011, the bridge had become structurally deficient and officials determined renovation would be too costly. Instead, Arkansas DOT built a $98 million replacement bridge consisting of twin 448-foot basket-handle network tied arches that now provides travelers with an aesthetically pleasing and reliable structure connecting the two downtown areas which have a combined population of over 260,000. Arkansas utilized Accelerated Bridge Construction to minimize impact on commuters and complete the project a month ahead of schedule.Photo-1 (1).jpg
