Abstract: Through the years, laws have been enacted to preserve our national cultural heritage. The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended (NHPA) was created to provide guidelines and requirements aimed at preserving tangible elements of our past, primarily through the creation of the National Register of Historic Places (National Register or NRHP). Two sections of this legislation (Sections 110 and 106) contain requirements for federal agencies to address their cultural resources, defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. The trolley bridge over Three Mile Creek at Fort Riley has been in place since 1914. Part of the Manhattan City and Interurban Railway Company (1909-1928), the structure previously did not previously undergo an assessment for a determination of eligibility (DOE). This project provides in-depth historical and architectural/engineering information about the bridge. The included documentation consists of descriptions, digital photographs, and known modifications to the bridge, as well as a historical context for the bridge. As a result of this thorough assessment, ERDC-CERL has determined that the bridge is not eligible for nomination to the National Register because of a loss of integrity by both the site and structure.
