It was deemed significant, despite its small size and simple appearance, for once having carried interstate traffic on U.S. Highway 34, and for representing an early highway bridge in Nebraska. According to its NRHP nomination, "Its 1908 construction date distinguishes it as the earliest documented example of concrete bridge construction in the state. Despite its diminutive size and simple detailing, the bridge is a technologically significant early remnant of Nebraska transportation.":3 It believed that it may have been designed by the Nebraska State Engineer, who, in 1908, had begun designing small concrete bridges.
