The Regis R. Malady Bridge, commonly known as the Elizabeth Bridge, is a cantilever bridge that carries vehicular traffic across the Monongahela River between Elizabeth, Pennsylvania and West Elizabeth, Pennsylvania. The bridge features freeway ramps at either end, with an exit to Third Street in Elizabeth (signed as Elizabeth/Glassport) on the south bank and exits for Route 837 North to Clairton and Route 837 South to West Elizabeth on the north bank. This bridge replaces an 1893 arch structure that sat at the same location. The bridge was renamed in 1985[1] for Regis Malady, a former Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives whose district included a variety of Mon Valley communities.
