A Facebook post has voiced concern for the Arkansas River Bridge at Ozark, but ARDOT says they could find nothing wrong.

That would have been built in the late 60's as a part of the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System upgrades to the Arkansas River.  I would think the Corps of Engineers would know if there was a problem with it.

I drive over that bridge 4-6 times a year visiting family in S. Franklin County, and I've never noticed anything awry with it.  It's one of the more eye-pleasing bridges in this part of the country, especially by boat at night.
