Bridge in French Creek Township is a historic multi-span steel Pratt truss bridge located in French Creek Township, Mercer County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1888 by the Columbia Bridge Works, and is a 277-foot-long (84 m) bridge with two spans. It crosses French Creek.[2]

During the summer of 2014 the bridge was removed, disassembled and placed in storage pending restoration and reuse. A modern bridge replaced it at the crossing.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
