Mississippi River Bridge-Lake Village
The bridge between Lake Village, Arkansas, and Greenville, Mississippi, is an architectural work of art. Opened in 2010, this is a four-lane cable-stayed bridge with more than 2.5 miles of bridge deck. It is topped with two concrete cable towers that are 425 feet high, with strand steel cable connecting to the top of the towers to support the bridge deck. The concrete piers anchoring the bridge extend 120 feet below the riverbed. At the time of its opening, it was the fourth-longest cable-stayed bridge in North America. Interestingly, both sides of the bridge are primarily in Arkansas. Given that state lines were determined long before the river channel shifted, much Arkansas land remains on the east side of the Mississippi River.
