Description

The White River Bridge in Elkins, Arkansas is a historic structure carrying County Road 44 over the White River in eastern Washington County. The bridge is a patented closed-spandrel arch design called the Luten arch, owned by the Luten Bridge Company of Knoxville, Tennessee, which emphasized strengthened piers and abutments, resulting in a reduced need for material. This bridge has three arches, with a total length of 192 feet (59 m). After construction in 1921, farmers in southeast Washington County were better able to bring their products to market in Elkins.The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.
