Significance: The 7th Street Bridge was one of two remaining Howe truss bridges in Wisconsin identified in a 1981 survey. The other example was the Old Wells Road Bridge, which was also built by the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railroad Company. In addition to these two trusses, there were three other wood and metal combination trusses extant in the state in 1981. In 1993, only one king post truss and one queen post truss survive.
