The Applegate River Bridge #01985 is significant as an intact example of a pre-WWII steel through truss. It is significant as an embodiment of an obsolete type and method of construction, a Parker through truss with riveted gusset plates, arched portals, laced members, barbell concrete piers, and cantilevered sidewalks. The Parker truss form, a Pratt truss with a polygonal top chord, is the predominant truss type for the remaining through truss bridges in Oregon.
