Summary

Significance: The Current River Bridge is a multi-span concrete-and-steel bridge consisting of three Parker through trusses and twenty-five concrete deck girder spans. Comprised of elements built from Missouri Highway department standard designs, the bridge, when completed, was distinguished as one of the longest bridges on the state highway system, and is a well-preserved example of standardized elements in bridge construction during the formative era of the Missouri State Highway Department.
