ADDITIONAL INFO:
The northern pier was left in place after the demolition of the bridge in 1970. It was intended to serve as an observation deck in the riverside park along the Allegheny River. The park, later named Roberto Clemente Park, was built as part of the construction of Three Rivers Stadium.

The Manchester bridge portal sculptures by Charles Keck were to be mounted on the old stone-faced pier, but the project was never completed. The sculptures have been stored at the Old Post Office (Children's Museum) on the North Side since.

The plan may be resurrected as part of the 2000 construction of the Pittsburgh Steelers football stadium adjacent the park.
