The Fort Pitt Bridge (foreground) spans the Monongahela River and provides easy access to downtown from the southern and western suburbs via I-279 (the Parkway West) and the Fort Pitt Tunnels. On the left, the Roberto Clemente (6th Street) Bridge, the 7th Street Bridge and the 9th Street Bridge are visible spanning the Allegheny River and connecting downtown to the North Side.|
The 6th Street Bridge, renamed the Roberto Clemente Bridge in 1999, is one of three identical "sister" bridges built across the Allegheny River, connecting Pittsburgh to the North Shore. It, like most downtown Pittsburgh river bridges, is painted golden yellow (the official city colors are Black and Gold).
If you like bridges, then you'll love Pittsburgh! We're affectionately known as the City of Bridges for good reason - over 1900 bridges exist in Allegheny County alone.
