The Arkansas Big Dam Bridge

If you like to run, hike, walk, or stroll, or if you ride a bicycle, the Big Dam Bridge in central Arkansas is well worth a stop.

Opened in 2006, it’s built specifically for pedestrian and bicycle use and is the world’s longest bridge specifically constructed for that purpose. Built over Murray Lock and Dam, it crosses the Arkansas River between Murray Park on the Little Rock side and Cook’s Landing Park on the North Little Rock side. It’s a major addition to the Arkansas River Trail, which will eventually be nearly 25 miles long. Its official name is Pulaski County Pedestrian & Bicycle Bridge – Murray Lock and Dam.

  • Dee_NC – Cool! I don’t know that I have a lot of readers here yet. Even though Haw Creek Out ‘n About is several years old, I’ve only recently been trying to focus on it and create posts that would be interesting to others. I hope to do at least a couple of good posts a week.
