The Walnut Creek Tributary Bridge was designed by Hays Miller of Rush County and constructed in 1934. It is a reinforced concrete arch bridge supported by abutments and piers with spandrel walls that extend above the roadway to form the railing. Miller served as Rush County engineer from 1921-1932 and in 1934 became the chief engineer of the State Planning Board. In 1942, he became research engineer for the Kansas Industrial Development Commission. The bridge was nominated as part of the "Masonry Arch Bridges of Kansas" multiple property document for its association with engineering and transportation.
