The Brownville Bridge is a truss bridge over the Missouri River on U.S. Route 136 (US 136) from Nemaha County, Nebraska, to Atchison County, Missouri, at Brownville, Nebraska.

It was built in 1939 by Atchison County, at a cost of $700,000 and was originally run as a toll bridge. It is now run by the county as a free crossing.[2]

The bridge is extremely narrow, with no shoulders and only one 8-foot lane in each direction. The bridge has undergone extensive repairs in 2009-10. The deck was replaced, along with pier and steel structure repair.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
