President Biden is still going to Pittsburgh today after a bridge collapse in the city.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the news on Twitter.

She added the President is “grateful” to all those who responded to the collapse.
She said the administration is keeping in contact with officials in Pittsburgh.
During his visit, Biden is due to talk about the infrastructure law he signed last year.
Meanwhile, there are no deaths following a bridge collapse in Pittsburgh. That’s according to Mayor Ed Gainey.
County Executive Rich Fitzgerald described the injuries as minor, but three were taken to the hospital.

The bridge collapsed just hours before President Biden was set to discuss the infrastructure law he signed last year.
