Port Vue Bridge
Posted November 13, 2016, by Mike Piontka (Spginc [at] comcast [dot] net)

The bridge is known as the 15th Street Bridge. I'm not sure why, since there was no street directly contributing to the bridge, and I don't think McKeesport had a 15th Street. However, as a native, that was what it was known by.
