The East Badger Creek Culvert is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under the "Masonry Arch Bridges of Kansas MPS." The culvert is locally significant, nominated under Criterion C in the area of Engineering, as it retains the distinctive historic characteristics of a locally built, rural stone arch span. Due to its size, the culvert was not included in the statewide survey of stone bridges conducted by the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) during the early 1980s, but it embodies the type, period and method of construction of a rural stone arch span. The period of significance is 1905-1906, the time during which the culvert was built.
