This bridge is a handsome gateway for the town of Keytesville. A good example of a standard plan truss bridge, this bridge is particularly noteworthy because it also contains a significant curved t-beam approach. The t-beam approach spans are also standard plan and provide a good look at Missouri's standard plan for t-beam bridges. As a single bridge displaying multiple standard plan types, this is a bridge with added significance. The combination of bridge types and the curved approach also add greatly to the aesthetic value of the bridge. The approach spans retain excellent historic integrity, while the truss has good integrity, although it appears something caused one section of the truss to sag or shift and this was repaired, representing a small alteration to the bridge.
