Boulevard of the Allies Bridge dedicated

A plaque recognizing the collaborative effort between community groups and government transportation authorities was unveiled June 2 in a brief ceremony beneath the Boulevard of the Allies Bridge.

The plaque, which reads in part, “In honor of the exemplary community partnership that guided the design and reconstruction of this bridge,” is flanked by two restored plaques from the 1928 span.

Unveiling the new plaque are, from left, Paul Tellers, former chair of the Oakland Task Force; John M. Wilds, Pitt assistant vice chancellor for community relations; Cheryl Moon-Sirianni, PennDOT District 11 assistant district executive for design; Patrick Hassett, assistant director of Pittsburgh’s Department of Public Works; G. Reynolds “Renny” Clark, Pitt vice chancellor for community initiatives and current Oakland Task Force chair, and Dan Cessna, PennDOT District 11 executive.
