The Self Creek Bridge is a historic bridge near Daisy, Arkansas. The open spandrel deck arch bridge carries United States Route 70 over Self Creek near its mouth at Lake Greeson. It was built in 1949 at a cost of $287,000. It has three spans, with a total length of 692 feet (211 m). The bridge was built because the construction of the dam which impounds the lake required re-routing of the highway.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]
