The Kittanning Citizens Bridge is a through truss bridge spanning the Allegheny River at Kittanning in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Constructed in 1932, the bridge carries vehicles and pedestrians 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 collapsed in 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. It has also been used in the opening credits of the 2012 movie One for the Money and appears briefly in the 2009 film The Hole.

The bridge is 949 feet (289 m) in length and has three main spans. Deck width is 16.3 feet (5.0 m) and navigational clearance beneath is 47 feet (14.3 m).[1]
