Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER ND-7
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Part of building/structure is in Mandan, Morton County, ND.
Significance: The Liberty Memorial Bridge is a three-span, Warren-Turner through truss bridge, a variation of the Warren through truss designed by C.A.P. Turner. This was the first highway bridge over the Missouri River constructed in North Dakota. It was also the only Warren-Turner truss bridge to be constructed in North Dakota, or elsewhere. Despite Turner's novel design, this variation of the Warren truss had little impact on American engineering.
