The Pitt Bridge is a replica of Pittsburgh's 10th Street Bridge, serving as the only way in or out of the city. It's about medium sized, and is inhabited by a Pitt Raider, a Mole rat, 2 Dogs, and 3 Wildmen. The river under the bridge is irradiated up to deadly levels. Jumping down there is not recommended.



The Pitt Raiders placed mines and other traps to stop slaves from escaping across the bridge. A lone sniper effectively eliminates any the mines miss.

If the wrecked vehicles scattered about on the bridge are an indication, it seems that shortly after the war National Guard troops attempted to enter Pittsburgh via the bridge but were stalled by heavy traffic as survivors attempted to flee the city.


At the south end of the bridge there is a Wildmen camp. Also, not far from this end there is a Pitt Raider with a sniper rifle on a jury-rigged walkway. The northern end of the bridge serves as the entrance to Downtown.

  • The shoreline and water are much, much, more irradiated than any body of water in the Capital Wasteland (around 350 on the river bank and around 500 in the water).
  • There is a Raider sniper at the very top of the bridge. If you kill him and climb up the scaffolding on the pedestrian walkway on the you can get his Sniper Rifle and loot several boxes of ammunition. Even if you sign on with Ashur, this Pitt Raider is always hostile.
  • Even if the player has disarmed the mines that kill the runaway slaves, they will still be killed by hidden, scripted explosions.
  • The Pitt Bridge appears to be modeled after the South 10th Street Bridge of Pittsburgh, which in itself takes styling cues from San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge. Ironically, the 10th Street Bridge rarely carries any significant traffic, yet The Pitt Bridge is the primary way (if not the only way) into the Pitt.


The Pitt Bridge appears in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.
