Plenty of Arkansas counties still have wooden bridges, but Faulkner County is preparing to replace its last of those crossings. According to county administrator Mike Hutchens, people tend to feel safer on steel or concrete bridges. The bridge that will be replaced crosses Cypress Bayou on County Road 468 in eastern Faulkner County. A federal program will pay 513-thousand dollars to replace the wooden bridge. Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department spokeswoman Ellen Hill said the funding comes through the federal Highway Bridge Rehabilitation and Replacement Program. The program replaces bridges that are too narrow, not strong enough or structurally deficient. Replacement work is to start in October and last until June 1.
