The Humboldt River Bridge is a concrete arch bridge across the Humboldt River in Winnemucca, Nevada, United States, that was built in 1910. It is 130 feet (40 m) long and was the first reinforced concrete archdeck bridge built in the county. It is significant as one of the last pair of such bridges surviving in Nevada, and also for association with economic expansion of Winnemucca in the early 20th century.[2]

It was designed by engineer George S. Nickerson.[2]

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