The South Omaha Bridge is technologically significant as a large-scale example of cantilevered truss construction. It provided motorists with a direct route across the Missouri River from Iowa into South Omaha and proved particularly useful for livestock trucks in need of easy access to and from the Omaha Stockyards. In 1995, it was renamed the Veterans Memorial Bridge. The structure was demolished in 2010 to make way for a new, larger bridge.
