View of the Bloomfield Bridge from the south cantilever arm, looking north across the culvert. Houses in Bloomfield and underneath the bridge, near the Pittsburgh Railroad and Junction Railroad lines, are also visible. Connecting Bigelow Boulevard and Liberty Avenue, the bridge took one year to build. It was designed by the city's Bureau of Bridges for an approximate cost of $450,000 but built by the Fort Pitt Bridge Works. The cantilevered structure totals 2,100 feet in length.
