Now part of the Clinton Presidential
Library, here is what the Little Rock bridge and depot looked like on
a foggy Monday afternoon, December 6, 2004.
With the large modern museum building next door, the
old "Choctaw Route" depot is now the Clinton School of Public
Service, which I guess is essentially training for future politicians.
The bridge will eventually be converted into a pedestrian walkway and
is not open to the public. It's certainly great that both structures are
now being taken care of, after pretty much being abandoned for two decades.
But I am disappointed that the freight depot and 2nd Street overpass,
which were part of the old railroad complex, were torn down. (Right) View
