The Kittanning Citizens Bridge is a through truss bridge in Kittanning, Pennsylvania. Constructed in 1932, the bridge carries vehicles and pedestrians over the Allegheny River between Kittanning and West Kittanning. The bridge was used as a backdrop, and climax scene in the 2002 horror, suspense film, "The Mothman Prophecies". In the film, it played the famous Silver Bridge which mysteriously collapsed in 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

The bridge is 949' (289m) in length and has three main spans. Deck width is 16.3' (5m) and navigational clearance beneath is 47 feet (14.3m). [ [http://www.historicbridges.org/pennsylvania/kittanning/index.htm Citizens Bridge] ]
