pittsburgh: the city of bridges

UncategorizedAnna Keller2 Comments

In 2006, Pittsburgh surpassed Venice, Italy as the city with the most bridges with piers or stands within city limits.

How many, exactly?

446

That would be 3 more than that other, slightly more renowned (but far prettier) city.

I had the distinct pleasure of walking across Hot Metal Bridge the other day, and you don't have to be a formal Civil Engineering major (such as myself) to appreciate a good truss or two.
