The bridge was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The J.H. Forbes Company constructed numerous steel bridges in the State during that time in history. The Midvale Bridge is significant as one of the most substantial bridges erected by J.H. Forbes, Idaho's first major bridge contractor.
