Biden Addresses Infrastructure Bill Following Bridge Collapse

PITTSBURGH – During President Joe Biden’s visit to Pittsburgh Friday, he visited the site of the bridge which collapsed Friday morning. When addressing the crowd, Pres. Biden said the nation’s new Infrustructure law would help rebuild the fallen bridge, “We’re gonna rebuild that bridge, along with thousands of other bridges in Pennsylvania and across the country.”

Biden also said fixing bridges across the country was long overdue. “It’s about time,” Biden said.

The US Department of Transportation’s National Bridge Inventory revealed following a 2019 inspection the deck and superstructure to be in poor condition. Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fedderman, who is running for US Senate, also spoke at the site.
