SOOC | MYM : Bridge, Pittsburgh

This is one of the many bridges in Pittsburgh, PA. I able to take a closer shot on it when we were at Point State Park during the 4th of July. There are tons of bridges in Pittsburgh area and most of them are painted with yellow. There were also black bridge for the train tracks and green.



The Bridges of Pittsburgh play an important role in the city's transportation system.
A 2006 study determined that Pittsburgh has 446 bridges, and with its proximity to three major rivers and countless hills and ravines, Pittsburgh is known as "The City of Bridges". Pittsburgh is the world record holder for bridges with piers and stands contained entirely within city limits, beating out Venice, Italy, the previous record holder by 3 bridges. There are many more bridges in Pittsburgh that are not counted toward the world record as they lack piers.
According to a 2011 study by Transportation for America, 30 of of Pittsburgh's bridges were deficient, the highest in the nation.Article Source:Wikipedia
