We look at life with such disregard

Today, in the rain, PennDOT cut the ribbon on the new Boulevard of the Allies gateway span.

A little history lesson...Collapse )
In 2007, a project began to remove the old bridge and replace it with a modern span lacking the dogleg ramp to outbound Forbes Avenue (and forever locking Forbes into one-wayness). Here are a few pictures of the bridge before and during demolition, and today's reopening. (As a note, Historic Pittsburgh has shots of the original end of the Boulevard as well as the previous bridge just before its opening.)
