After Pittsburgh bridge collapse, Biden touts infrastructure plan at Carnegie Mellon

Just a few hours after a bridge collapsed in Pittsburgh on Friday morning, President Joe Biden gave a speech in the city, emphasizing the need to improve the nation’s infrastructure.

His event and the subject matter were scheduled before the Fern Hollow Bridge, near Frick Park, fell, injuring 10 people.

Biden visited the collapse site, speaking with emergency personnel and making brief remarks…

Biden gave his speech at Mill 19, a collaborative innovation space for A.I., automation and robotics, located at the site of a former steel mill. In that setting, Biden said Pittsburgh is “transforming” itself from “being told you’re a city without a future to becoming a city of the future.”
