The Berry State Aid Bridge spans the Niobrara River in Cherry County, Nebraska near Valentine, Nebraska. It is a historic Pratt through truss bridge that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Also known as the Niobrara River Bridge and identified as NEHBS No. CE00-225, it was built during 1920-21. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]

It replaced an original bridge at the site that was built in 1899, which was moved about five miles to replace another bridge, and which is now also NRHP-listed as Brewer Bridge. During construction of the new Berry State Aid Bridge, a dynamite blast damaged it, but it was completed by June 1921.[2]
