Pittsburgh is generally considered to be the City of Bridges for its famous river bridges. However, many of the city’s significant bridges are not as well known, crossing ravines, railroads, and roads throughout the city. Some of those bridges have even disappeared, since the valleys they crossed were filled in to allow the city to develop. Join Images of America Pittsburgh’s Bridges author Todd Wilson for a lecture discussing many of the innovative and awe-inspiring bridges of Pittsburgh that you may have never heard about.
About the presenter: Todd Wilson is an award-winning professional engineer in Pittsburgh who has been photographing and writing about bridges his whole life. A transportation engineer, he is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and serves as History and Heritage Chair for the Pittsburgh Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
