Old Osage bridge gone

Sunday, August 14, 2011
Gone but not forgotten is the old highway bridge spanning the Osage Creek on Ark. Hwy. 21 south of Berryville that was dismantled recently after the new bridge was completed and opened to traffic. The work began last year after Crouse Construction Company of Harrison was awarded the contract in October with its bid of $1,884,776. Jimmy Jones Excavation was the subcontractor on the dirt work portion. State Highway Commissioner Dick Trammel said the purpose of the project was to construct a bridge "to make this a safer roadway for years to come."

  • There was nothing wrong with the "old" bridge, and with less than half the boondoggling price of $1.88M, any required repairs could have been made...to make it safer for years to come....
