PA 43 Denbo Bridge

Where Are We? from StartPoint Media on Vimeo.

This is the final stretch of PA Turnpike Route 43 in near Brownsville, Pa. I rode my bicycle from the road terminus in Redstone Twp. to the emmense Denbo Bridge across the Monongahela River. Original construction on the highway began at California, Pa. in the mid 1970’s. With the completion of the bridge, the road will run continuously from Jefferson Hills, Pa. To the West Virginia border. A portion of the road is nearing completion in West Virginia, while the most complicated section from Jefferson Hills to Pittsburgh is in the planning stages. It is unclear when or if that portion of the road will ever be completed. But in the meantime, here is a sneak peek of the highway and bridge your toll dollars funded to build. Visit the project website for more information.
