description

Summary

Significance: The Liberty Memorial Bridge is a three-span, Warren-Turner through truss bridge, a variation of the Warren through truss designed by C.A.P. Turner. This was the first highway bridge over the Missouri River constructed in North Dakota. It was also the only Warren-Turner truss bridge to be constructed in North Dakota, or elsewhere. Despite Turner's novel design, this variation of the Warren truss had little impact on American engineering.
