Visitor Tips and News About Bridge To Nowhere

AZYUMbridge_2730

The story goes that this bridge was built before the Golden Gate Bridge because this was a test or trial to see if the expansion bridge would work. Mock Golden Gate Bridge.

Bridge to Nowhere.

Bridge to Nowhere.

Bridge to NowhereEasy to see the bridge from the road. You can tell teenagers go there when it gets dark, lots of graffiti. A couple fences where broken into when we got there so we could walk right up to the bridge, but you can’t see the other side, and it was too hot (111 F) to try and walk our way across it.

  1. Eye catcher! Interesting that nearly 20 years ago I published a photo on front page of a small weekly regarding a bypass that ended overlooking a farmers field. The bypass was built in 1976 and by the early 1990s it hadn’t been completed due to funding and choosing an appropriate path. My mother told me a week ago that the gov’ment is finally buying up property rights to extend that bypass and the extension won’t be completed until 2024. My caption read: “Road to nowhere?” I didn’t know how prophetic I was at the time. I’m not sure PennDot will get the job done by 2024. Peace, Miss Ana.
