By the way, This is my favorite shot. Great color.
Not sure if you know this Aaron but this bridge just got a fresh coat of paint a couple years ago At a cost of $14.5 million which is why it is so vibrant.
Also, in the 1960s it was known as the "bridge to nowhere" as it didn't connect to anything for 5 years.
This is a hilarious story about it:
"On December 12, 1964, a 21 year old chemistry major at the University of Pittsburgh drove a 1959 Chrysler station wagon off the end of the bridge and landed unhurt on the other side. His adventure is documented in WQED-TV's Mid-Atlantic region Emmy Award-winning documentary "Flying off the Bridge to Nowhere and Other Tales of Pittsburgh Bridges", narrated by Rick Sebak.
Within a few weeks of this near tragedy, iconic Pittsburgh radio personality, Rege Cordic, distributed commemorative bumper stickers which read "Official Entry, Cordic & Company Bridge Leap Contest." With thousands of vehicles bearing these stickers on Pittsburgh's streets, the city responded by blocking off the end of the bridge with concrete barriers."
