After nine seasons with the team, Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is headed to San Francisco where the Giants have agreed to acquire him from the Pirates in a deal announced Monday. That deal inspired no shortage of outrage from Pirates fans who continue to see the team's front office as the biggest problem facing the organization. And given the fact that McCutchen is gone and that Gerrit Cole is too, many Pirates faithful aren't exactly excited about the upcoming MLB season.

The resulting constructing project was massive, expensive and complicated. But the end product is one of Pittsburgh's most famous and scenic roadways, one that remains a vital asset for commuters in the city's southern end.
