PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh bridge has been renamed for Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough on his 80th birthday.
County officials gathered Sunday to rename the 16th Street Bridge in McCul-lough's honor. A Pittsburgh native and two-time Pul-itzer prize winner, he says no honor has touched him like the decision to rename the bridge after him.
McCullough wrote a book about the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge.
The span across the Allegheny River was built in 1923 to connect the Strip District with the historic H.J. Heinz plant.
