This bridge is next to the Robert McAfee Bridge. This bridge is equally impressive to look at. Notice the size of the city bus passing under the bridge in the photo above. Pittsburgh has many concrete arch bridges and this example, even though it is large, is not the largest, and also contains an altered deck. These facts hold back its local significance, however if this bridge were located anywhere else it would be a noteworthy structure based on its size.
