The Humboldt Bridge is one of the finest and best looking of the impressive collection of Marsh rainbow arch bridges in Kansas. This one has been embraced by Humboldt, for which it provides a visual and functional gateway into. City signage featured the bridge as part of its logo. On the west end, where the bridge sits next to Neosho River Park the abutments are nicely landscaped with flowers and stonework. Even when the bridge was built it was designed to be a gateway landmark. The overhead bracing at the west end, west face (for drivers headed into Humboldt) has "Humboldt" cast into the concrete instead of the construction date, as was normally done with the Marsh arch bridges, and is done at the east end of this particular bridge (visible to drivers leaving the city).
