For nearly a century, the Rock Island Railroad played a central role in the Kansas City Stockyards District, which ran along both sides of the Kansas (Kaw) River and was the second-largest beef processing center in the world. The Railroad's initial bridge over the Kansas River was swept away in the flood of 1901. The Railroad hired the American Bridge company to design and build two 302-foot-long Pennsylvania trusses and concrete foundations forty feet into the riverbed to replace it. The new bridge began service in 1905.
