This bridge is a noteworthy example of a state standard truss bridge, since it has a multi-span configuration of four spans resulting in a relatively large structure length. The bridge has a listed sufficiency of zero. The bridge is in need of repair but is not so far gone that a rehabilitation is not feasible. Missouri tends to list sufficiency ratings for its state standard truss bridges as very low compared to other states with truss bridges in comparable condition. More than just structural integrity goes into the sufficiency rating calculation, and it is possible that MoDOT under-rates one or more of the factors that determine sufficiency compared to other states. The problem with this is that it is likely resulting in the demolition of truss bridges which could be rehabilitated for continued safe and functional vehicular use, historic value, and possibly a financial savings as well.
