I like that PennDOT decided to call this the "Bridges to Nowhere Preservation Project"

It's so western PA to reference things that aren't applicable anymore (for example, giving directions to someone like "Yinz gotta go dahn a few blocks and turn right at [business that has since changed names, or just doesn't exist anymore]"

Those spans haven't been bridges to "nowhere" for roughly 29 years now.
That being said, just reading the name in the link, I knew exactly the bridges they were talking about before even clicking on the link.

I don't have opinions anymore. All I know is that no one is better than anyone else, and everyone is the best at everything
