The Cove Creek Bridge is a historic bridge, carrying Arkansas Highway 309 across Cove Creek, south of the hamlet of Corley, Arkansas in the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest. It is a two-span closed-spandrel masonry arch structure, with each span measuring 13 feet (4.0 m) and an overall structure length of 26 feet (7.9 m). It is built entirely out of stone, with a concrete and asphalt deck, and concrete barriers at the sides. It was built in 1936 with funding support from the Works Progress Administration.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.[1]
