From the roadway, this just looks like a standard concrete through girder, yet if you look underneath you will notice that the girder angles downward slightly into the abutment. The KHRI link has a photograph which shows this. I don't know if this odd design has any significance or not.

Unfortunately, I did not take the time to look underneath these bridges when I lived in the area - I was more focused on locating old trusses. That being said, Atchison County has quite a diversity of concrete girder bridges.
