Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER MT-102
Significance: The bridge was the first riveted through truss constructed across the Yellowstone River in Montana. It was also significant because it opened the territory north of the Yellowstone River in the vicinity of Pompey's Pillar to ranching and homesteading by allowing access to the Northern Pacific Railroad station at Pompey Pillar. It was also one of the last of the bridge company-designed and constructed bridges built in Montana without the direct involvement of the Montana Highway Commission.
