The Arkansas Highway 57 Bridge is a Warren pony truss bridge in Stephens, Arkansas. It carries an old alignment of Arkansas Highway 57 over a branch of the Union Pacific Railroad near the city center. The bridge is now closed to traffic; the road on which it is located is now called Ruby Street. The bridge is distinctive in Arkansas for two reasons: first, it was the last bridge of its type on a state highway, and it has a pedestrian sidewalk on the outside of the trusses. It is unknown who built the trusses; the bridge was built in 1928.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
