The South Perry Street Bridge is in Titusville, Crawford County, in PennDOT District 1-0.

Built in 1881 by the Morse Bridge Company of Youngstown, Ohio, South Perry Street Bridge is a single-span, pinned Pratt thru truss with a span length of 123 feet by 18.4 feet in width with approximately 14.38 feet of vertical clearance. The bridge is located in Titusville and carries South Perry Street over Oil Creek. This is a seven-panel Pratt with several early and non-standard details, including floor beams that rest above the lower cords and pins that are framed into the box-shaped verticals. The bridge has a long and rich history as a link between the residential neighborhood of South Titusville and the numerous industries and commercial district north of Oil Creek. The bridge has been closed to vehicular traffic since 2017. In an effort to preserve this historic structure, ownership of the bridge in its entirety will be transferred to an interested party for removal to a new location. The new owner will be responsible for costs associated with removal, rehabilitation and long-term maintenance of the spans
