This is kind of cool.
Calling it a "work of art" during a December visit with other mayors to the White House, [Pittsburgh Mayor Bill] Peduto asked President Obama to donate the scaffolding to Pittsburgh. His idea is to erect it on the North Shore to mark the western terminus of the Great Allegheny Passage, a biking trail that runs to Washington. Local iron workers and a trucking company are lined up to transport and build the scaffolding.
The trail could "begin at the Washington Monument and end at the Washington Monument," Peduto said at the time.
