President Biden remarks on infrastructure in Pittsburgh | USA Today
President Joe Biden will travel to Pittsburgh on Friday to promote a bipartisan law aimed at shoring up the nation’s a infrastructure network as rescue efforts were underway following a bridge collapse in the city.
The White House said Friday that Biden’s planned stop in Pittsburgh would proceed as planned. He is scheduled to speak hours after a two-lane bridge collapsed around 6 a.m., leaving a bus dangling on what remained of the span.
The Associated Press reported Friday rescuers had to rappel nearly 150 feet and formed a human chain to retrieve people who were left on the bus. As of Friday morning, only minor injuries were reported.
