Reminiscent of its namesake artist’s colorful pop art, the Andy Warhol Bridge shines bright yellow and is just one block south of the Andy Warhol Museum. The impressive 20th-century bridge is the middle structure in a trio of bridges called the Three Sisters of Pittsburgh, also comprising the Rachel Carson Bridge and the Roberto Clemente Bridge.
Walk along the sidewalks of the bridge and admire spectacular views over the Allegheny River. Watch vehicles whiz past you on the bridge’s road, as you pass through its tall central arch. To the northwest stands the PNC Park baseball arena. Arrive at the bridge’s northern end and study the sculptures of Allegheny Landing.
At the southern side of the bridge is Allegheny Riverfront Park. Stroll past the row of trees and sit on one of the benches by the water. Enjoy the vista of the buildings marking the other side and the yellow bridges above you.
The Andy Warhol Bridge is also known as the Seventh Street Bridge. It was inaugurated in 1926 and was the third bridge to be built on this spot. Consider its self-supporting suspension design and study the various cables and rivets holding up the yellow steel frame.
It was named after its eponymous artist in 2005 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Andy Warhol Museum, just one block north of the bridge. Explore the museum’s exhibits to learn about the history and development of the Pittsburgh native and his influential work in pop art.
The Andy Warhol Bridge stretches across the Allegheny River in the center of Pittsburgh. Arrive at the Wood Street metro station and walk north for a couple blocks to get here.
