North Little Rock, AR

Hey ya'll,

I was just in North Little Rock/Little Rock and I have a question about a line that leads off what I believe is the main line through town. Right near downtown there's a wye that comes off the main line and the entire ROW ends about 100 feet after the wye. I'm 99.9% sure this is the same ROW that would have crossed the Junction Bridge.

My question is simply

1. Where did the line go?
2. When was service ended?
3. When was the line torn up and why was the wye saved?

All I see from OpenRailwayMaps is a track that connects to a bunch of other tracks connecting back to different mainlines on the opposite side of the Arkansas River. Looks like redundant ROWs more or less
