There are three bridges in this immediate area, the Andy Warhol Bridge, Roberto Clemente Bridge and Rachel Carson Bridge. I didn't have a chance to walk this one like I did for the R. Clemente one. I took this bridge to get to the Warhol museum. Nice looking bridge.

Going from town over to the North Side the bridge show off how eco friendly a bridge could be with wind powered lights.

Three bright yellow bridges cross the Allegheny River quite close to each other in Downtown Pittsburgh. They are the first self-anchored suspension bridges to be built in the United States, and all look much alike. But the middle span — the Andy Warhol Bridge — is the only one in the United States named for a visual artist. I have long admired Warhol for his ability to step outside the box and planned to cross this bridge en route to the excellent Andy Warhol Museum. Instead, major construction work forced me to take a detour. The bridge was closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic; and on that late October day, I could not get an estimate as to when it would open again.

So I crossed the river, walking on another member of the trio, the Rachael Carson (Ninth Street) Bridge. This allowed me to get a good feeling for what it would have been like on the Warhol and to look at that bridge in the process. Though now named for the artist, a native of Pittsburgh, the bridge opened in 1926 as the Seventh Street Bridge. It took on Warhol’s name in 2005 as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the museum.

Years ago, people in Pittsburgh were trying to get to the other side of Allegheny River but drownings were high. This bridge was the solution, as well as many of the other amazing bridges in this city. Pittsburgh natives may take them for granted but this is seriously a beautiful city full of wonderful friendly people. These bridges are amazing and architecturally stunning. There are three bridges in this immediate area, the Andy Warhol Bridge, Roberto Clemente Bridge and Rachel Carson Bridge. Rumor has it, many years ago, these three bridges were invited to a ball but only one bridge was chosen by the prince to be his wife. This of course was the Rachel Carson Bridge, the only female bridge in this lineup. These bridges have cousins on the other side of town but they do not communicate. These are the snooty bridges that cross the Monongahela River. The Smithfield Bridge, Liberty Bridge and the 10th st. Bridge. And then of course are the very distant relatives the tunnels, my favorite being the Armstrong Tunnel which is only 3 feet wide but somehow two cars fit through. The trick is to close your eyes, accelerate and pop out the other side. I've heard the bridges think they are so much better than the tunnels but that is a whole other review. (The David McCullough Bridge has been spreading that rumor)
