printing larger sizes

Question about printing 6MP images to larger sizes such as 16x24 inches. I know many of us had the D100s and D70s form years ago, and there were some great images made. How do you prepare images from those cameras for prints up to 16x24? Is it better to try and upsize the image in photoshop, or to try and print it in the native pixel dimensions? I have this photo of the golden gate bridge (attached) and someone wants a 16x24 print of it. The dimensions are 3008x2000 from the D70 from years ago. My fear in upsizing is that the fine details in the bridge cables will have noticeable fringing artifacts, or white edges from the upsizing. Can someone guide me how to print this one large?
