Biden Visits Site of Pittsburgh’s Collapsed Bridge

President Joe Biden is visiting the collapsed bridge in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that fell just hours before his scheduled trip to promote his infrastructure package, a new law that aims to prevent just such disasters.

Biden has called frequently for more money and action to shore up and improve the nation’s crumbling roads and bridges.

The White House said the president spoke with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey before leaving for Pennsylvania and offered federal support for the cleanup efforts.
