The Anoka-Champlin Mississippi River Bridge, also known as the Ferry Street Bridge, is a 10-span open spandrel concrete deck arch bridge that spans the Mississippi River between Champlin and Anoka, Minnesota, United States. The bridge was built in 1929 by the Minneapolis Bridge Company. In 1979 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

By 1991 the bridge had deteriorated to the point where it needed to be renovated. A temporary bridge was built alongside the current bridge, and the Anoka-Champlin bridge was torn down to the piers and arches. A new, wider deck and support system was built. In order to keep its historic status, the ornamental concrete railing and other parts were duplicated from the old form. The bridge was reopened in 1998, and the temporary bridge was removed.

It was listed on the National Register for state-level significance in engineering and transportation as a representative of the open-spandrel concrete arch bridges developed in the Twin Cities area in the late 1920s, and for providing a key connection between two river communities.
