Pittsburgh is home to 446 of the Commonwealth’s bridges and in the wake of the Fern Hollow Bridge collapse, the region is top of mind for lawmakers in Harrisburg. To examine the status of the region’s bridges, identify the tools we have and need to maintain them, and assess the proper amount of funding needed, Rep. Dan Frankel, D-Allegheny, the Pa. House Policy Committee, and lawmakers gathered in Pittsburgh for a hearing.
