The Illinois River Bridge is a historic bridge, carrying a discontinued portion of Kincheloe Road (once designated Benton County Road 196) over the Illinois River northeast of the hamlet of Pedro, Arkansas. It is a single-span Pratt through truss with a span of 126 feet (38 m) and a total structure length of 206 feet (63 m). The bridge was built by the county in 1922, and was closed to traffic in 2004.[2]

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005, and it is one of three Illinois River bridge crossings in Arkansas named "Illinois River Bridge" that are NRHP-listed.[1]
