PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Officials in Allegheny County want to know whether Pittsburgh’s three “sister bridges” across the Allegheny River look better in another color.
County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto began asking residents Friday to cast online votes on whether the identical spans should remain Pittsburgh yellow or be painted in a different color or colors.
The county says it will be begin repainting all three bridges later this year, starting with the Andy Warhol Bridge. Citizens wishing to express their opinion can choose among several options at the county’s website.
The county says it’s been suggested that the Andy Warhol Bridge be painted silver, the Rachel Carson Bridge be painted green and the Roberto Clemente Bridge be repainted Pittsburgh yellow.
