The Emlenton Low Level Bridge is a girder bridge that spans the Allegheny River at Emlenton in the U.S state of Pennsylvania. It connects two separate portions of the borough in Venango and Clarion counties. It replaced, an 1883 truss bridge that stood just upstream, which replaced several previous wooden structures; the modern bridge was constructed in 1987.
