Significance: The Hermann Bridge (Bridge No. K-226A) is a multi-span structure crossing the Missouri River. It consists of two continuous Warren through-trusses, one Warren polygonal through-truss, two Warren deck trusses, and three steel-stringer approaches. The total length of the bridge is approximately 2,232', and the structure has undergone only minor alterations since it opened to traffic in 1930. The bridge was built by the National Toll Bridge Company and operated initially as a toll bridge. The Missouri State Highway Commission purchased the structure in 1932, converting it to a toll-free facility. The structure represents an excellent example of large-scale highway bridge construction and local efforts to bridge the Missouri River.
