Davtashen Bridge or Davitashen Bridge (Armenian: Դավթաշենի կամուրջ) is a bridge for traffic linking across the Hrazdan River in Yerevan, Armenia. It connects the Vaghrshyan street of Arabkir district with the Sasna Tzrer street of Davtashen district within the capital city. The construction process was launched during the 1970s by the Soviet government but abandoned shortly after. Only in 1996, the construction of the bridge was completed.[1]

The bridge was designed by architect Rafael Israelyan.[2]
