Train Bridge - Cotter
6X8, Oil on Oak Panel
The town of Cotter sits on the banks of the White River. This train bridge is just upstream from a vehicular bridge of historical note. The White River in this area is renown for it's trout fishing. Cotter has been bypassed by a new stretch of 4 lane divided US 412/62. I wonder what the future holds for this town? Often times, when small towns like this get bypassed they just fade away. Cotter at least has a good deal of tourist trade and maybe it will hang on or possibly even thrive with the better access a 4 lane divided highway can bring.
