Constructed in 1898 near Barneston, the Mission Creek Bridge is technologically significant as one of the three oldest of thirty-two small, steel, rigid-connected Warren pony trusses of a type found only in Gage County. They are characterized by a relatively lightweight superstructure and a rare suspended U-bolt connection of the floor beams to the superstructure.
