The North Omaha Creek Bridge was a historic Pin-connected Pratt truss bedstead bridge that was built in 1905, located on 26 Road, a north–south rural road in Thurston County, Nebraska.

When photographed in 2010, the bridge was posted with a 9 tonnes (8.9 long tons; 9.9 short tons) weight limit sign.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]

The bridge was 80 feet (24 m) long with a roadway 15.4 feet (4.7 m) wide. It had a timber decking over transverse steel I-beam stringers.[2]

The bridge is apparently no longer extant, as a November 2016 photo, by the same photographer as in 2010, shows a new bridge under construction.

The location is about 6 miles (9.7 km) (by car travel on existing roads) southwest of Winnebago and 5 miles (8.0 km) northwest of Walthill.[note 1]
