Between 1897 and 1910, Gage County contracted for perhaps as many as two hundred of these standardized riveted Warren pony trusses. At the time of the bridge survey in 1990, thirty-two were still in existence. The sixty-foot span of the Big Indian Creek Bridge located near Wymore and constructed in 1903, is technologically significant as the longest of these survivors.
