The Eighth Street Bridge is a girder bridge connecting Cranberry Township and Franklin, Pennsylvania. The current 1986 structure is similar to several others that were constructed along the river during the same era; it replaced a 1920s truss bridge that was an original construction from the founding of U.S. Route 322.
