Jack Bell, left, chief of staff for the city of Conway, and Steve Ibbotson, director of the Conway Parks and Recreation Department, stand at the foot of the 1874 Springfield Des-Arc Bridge, which will be moved to Beaverfork Lake in Conway. Work is underway to clear the road and make a gravel pad for a crane to sit on as it lifts the bridge — scheduled for the first of November — so it can be restored. The bridge spans Cadron Creek at the Faulkner-Conway county line.
