My Maps App Took Me Here to Cross the Mon?

(I think I read somewhere-  don’t use alliteration?  Mmmmmmmmm.)

How did I end up here, looking to cross the Mon?

I couldn’t believe it when I landed right in front of this sign. Bridge Closed.  It was just getting dark.

Turns out this bridge to Donora has been closed since 2009!!! The way you have to go now is a four mile addition to the trip.

The Monongahela River winds all around the place.  I’d crossed it at Homestead at the beginning of my journey.

Then I found out later this bridge is slated to be demolished.

With the help of my son’s MIL, Marlene, on the phone in Hardy, Virginia,  I found the Monessen Bridge and wound around  and up and over  to Donora.

You can’t always trust your Maps App.  At least the sign didn’t say BRIDGE OUT!    It was one of three routes.  Better try a different one next time. I read about the major supports having deteriorated.  Maybe the maps app just wanted to show me it for a photo op?
