This is a list of bridges and tunnels on the National Register of Historic Places in the U.S. state of Nebraska.[1]

Many of the bridges were the works of the Nebraska Department of Roads or its predecessors, including the Nebraska Bureau of Roads & Bridges. Many were registered after a study in the 1990s seeking to inventory historic bridges in Nebraska and pursuant to a Multiple Property Submission titled "Highway Bridges in Nebraska."[2][3][4]
