The Cottonwood Creek Bridge is a bridge over Cottonwood Creek in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The structure is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The bridge was completed on what was a major Colorado north-south road in 1923 and is one of the few long cantilevered, girder bridges in the state from the 1920s. It has a concrete deck and is made of four 53-foot spans. It is made with a "hammered concrete treatment on the spandrels and cast concrete balusters forming the guardrails."
