The Barteau Bridge, also known as Shioc Road Bridge, is a four-arch limestone arch bridge in Bovina, Wisconsin built during 1905-06. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002 for its engineering significance.[1]

The bridge brought a two-lane road over the Shioc River. John W. Hayes prepared plans for the bridge; James P. Garvey, of Freedom, was contracted to build it, for $6,795.[2]

The bridge was bypassed in 1979.[2]
