The Ends of the Old Roadway
East and West

Below are photos of the eastern and western ends of the old roadway.  The current western terminus of the roadway is the location of the former U.S. Route 30 bridge.  Prior to that, the end of the roadway (legally accessible) was located near the rear parking lot of the Ramada Inn, in Breezewood, Pennsylvania. 

The current eastern terminus of the roadway is the location of the former Pumping Station Road bridge.  This bridge crossed a two-lane rough road which is located near the former Cove Valley Service Plaza. 

The eastern end of the trail -- the location of the former Pumping Station Road bridge.

This bridge is now removed.  Visitors to the abandoned roadway are asked to remain east of the former
bridge location.  West of the former bridge location remains the property of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
