City of Pittsburgh and PennDOT officials are explaining their plans to demolish the Greenfield Bridge over the Parkway East later this year.
It’s not going to happen until the fall, but a major traffic alert is already giving Parkway East drivers anxiety.
If you want to get from Fayette County to Greene County, don’t count on the Masontown Bridge anymore.
Part of the 31st Street Bridge was brought down Thursday morning. A span of the bridge over the Allegheny River’s back channel was brought down with explosives around 10 a.m.
The Greenfield Bridge which has been coming down on its own a chunk at a time for two decades is going to be imploded – dropped from its height to the Parkway below in a cloud of dust and debris.
After 100 years, an old but historic bridge in our area is now history!
With the flip of a switch, 150-pounds of explosives took down the old Charleroi-Monessen Bridge shortly before 9 a.m. this morning to make way for a brand new span between Washington and Westmoreland Counties.
