Need Help Finding a TV show location

Please help me identify a bridge as seen on Justified the TV show. In the first episode of the FX network show Justified, there is a large green suspension bridge featured quite prominently. According to Wikipedia the pilot episodes were shot in Pittsburgh and suburban Kittanning, Pennsylvania and Washington, Pennsylvania.

Now as you can imagine there are quite a few suspension bridges in all of those locations. Can anyone help me identify the large green one featured in the pilot ep?

I am trying to figure out if it is a new bridge or a converted railway one...

I know I know it's a bizzarre thing to need to know but there ya go. thanks !

I didn't watch the first episode so I'm shooting in the dark, but how about this one? Apparently on eastbound 376, it's the 10th St. Suspension Bridge. Another view. I guess it's really yellow, though.

Best answer: It's not a suspension bridge, but if filmed in Kittanning, it could have been the Kittanning Citizens Bridge. I haven't actually seen the episode, though, so I don't know for certain. This article seems to corroborate my theory.

Best answer: I think it's a truss bridge, not a suspension bridge.

I don't know the bridge's location, however.

FYI, a suspension bridge is a bridge like the Golden Gate Bridge or the George Washington Bridge.

Best answer: Also, this listing of filming locations from IMDB for the pilot episode would suggest that the truss bridge in Kittanning (as suggested by Nothlit) is a likely candidate.

Good god, they shot here in WashPA? So be it. The bridge won't have been here, then. We're too far from any of the rivers. Cross that off the list, fwiw.

Historic bridges of Washington County, PA.

None of which are actually in the city of Washington, which was what the poster seemed to be asking.

Apologies. Having grown up very nearby, it does not strike me as odd to think of the city and the county as interchangeable.
