The Hale Creek Bridge is a historic bridge carrying County Road 271 (aka Fletcher Road) over Hale Creek in Sevier County, Arkansas, near the village of Red Wing and about half way between De Queen and Dierks. It consists of a single-span Pratt pony truss 30 feet (9.1 m) long, resting on concrete abutments. The bridge deck is 18 feet (5.5 m) wide and is surfaced in gravel. When the bridge was built in 1919, the roadway it carried was the major east-west route in the area. In 1926 this route was designated U.S. Route 70. It retained this designation until the current alignment of US 70 was built in 1952. The bridge is a fine local example of a Pratt truss bridge.

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
