The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said on Friday it was sending a team to the site of a bridge collapse in Pittsburgh.

The team will arrive on Friday afternoon and Chair Jennifer Homendy will be the board member on the scene, the NTSB said on Twitter.

A two-lane bridge in Pittsburgh collapsed on Friday hours ahead of a visit by President Joe Biden to the Pennsylvania city, a dramatic example of the urgency behind his drive to rebuild the United States' creaky infrastructure.
