A walk across this local favorite bridge is a must-do, especially when it’s closed to vehicles during sporting events.

Pick a date when the Pittsburgh Pirates or the Steelers are playing a home game and join in the festive crowds strolling across the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Closed to vehicles on baseball and football game days, this walkway across the Allegheny River is lined with street performers and buzzing with sports fans. It’s a fun time for the entire family, even if you don’t have tickets for a game. Baseball is played at PNC Park and football at Heinz Field Stadium.Roberto Clemente was a baseball star for the Pirates, and the bridge named in his honor is one of the Three Sisters, nearly identical bridges with the other two named for legendary Pittsburgh residents Rachel Carson and Andy Warhol. Each bridge is painted gold, as the city’s official colors are yellow and black. These bridges are the only trio of parallel suspension bridges in the United States. The sweeping shape of their design is unusual too it’s a result of steel eyebars being used instead of cables during construction. The original bridge on this site was constructed in 1859 and was known as Sixth Street Bridge. However, higher traffic demands saw the need for rebuilds, with the most recent being in 1927. Crossing the bridge, you’ll experience the city’s best views of PNC Park. At night, the bridge glitters with blue lights shining along its graceful curves and extending into the stadium. This makes for a spectacular photo from one of the nearby skyscrapers. Access to the Roberto Clemente Bridge is via Sixth Street. The bridge is open 24 hours a day.
