The North Loup Bridge brings a county road over the North Loup River, about 1.5 miles northeast of the village of North Loup in Valley County, Nebraska. It was built in 1912-1913 by Empire Bridge Company of Omaha, Nebraska, at cost of $13,089, using steel parts fabricated by Cambria Steel Company and Lackawanna Steel Company. It is a Pratt through truss bridge and includes three 100 feet (30 m) through truss spans upon steel cylinder piers. There is also a 40 feet (12 m) pony truss approach span on the south side.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]
