Documentation compiled after 1968.

Notes
Survey number HAER WY-74
Building/structure dates: 1920 initial construction
Significance: The Big Wind River Bridge is a juryrigged structure which combines an arched top chord with the simplistic bearing of a King Post truss. It appeared to be constructed from salvaged materials - an interesting departure from standard form for a smaller vehicular truss.
