Pittsburgh Department of Public Works was a government office in Pittsburgh, managing public works projects, including large scale public construction works, such as the reconstruction of the historical Wabash Bridge. This project was particularly controversial, as it was a copy of the 10th Street Bridge, rather than an accurate reconstruction of the old bridge. This led to outrage and accusations of criminal negligence, especially from the Pittsburgh Heritage Society.[1]


Pittsburgh Department of Public Works is mentioned only in Fallout 3.

    Director James,
    I am once again writing to encourage you to resign your position following the disastrous reconstruction of the Wabash Bridge. While I understand that it was your desire to unify the city's skyline, we at the Pittsburgh Heritage Society feel that replacing the historical Wabash Bridge with a simple copy of the 10th Street structure was laziness bordering on criminal negligence on the part of the Department of Public Works. As the director of the department, the Society holds you responsible.
    I will be addressing this matter at the next meeting of the county administrators.
