A rendering of the proposed LED light installation on the three Sister Bridges by Allegheny County.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald announced this week, that the county will spend $6 million to light the iconic Sister Bridges that straddle the Allegheny River, connecting Downtown Pittsburgh to the neighborhoods on its North Side.

The three bridges — Rachel Carson, Andy Warhol and Roberto Clemente— all of them landmarks listed in the National Register of Historic Places, will be adorned with programmable LED lights, an installation that is expected to be completed in December 2023.

Our organization was involved in efforts to help light landmark bridges for years, starting with the Smithfield Street Bridge, the Roberto Clemente Bridge, and the Hot Metal Bridge. We commend Allegheny County for this initiative which will greatly enhance the beauty of our city’s bridges and architectural landscape.
