North Omaha Creek Bridge

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, and was delisted in 2019.

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.

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.
