PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Rachel Carson Bridge, also known as the 9th Street Bridge, is back open after a shutdown that lasted nearly two years.


The bridge was closed for the last 21 months for a rehab project.


That project included structural repairs, a new concrete deck, painting, and replacement lights that resemble the originals from the 1920’s.
