The Wheeling Suspension Bridge

2017 New England, Ohio, Road Trip, States, West Virginia

Out of Sugarcreek we traveled east on OH-39 then south on I-77 to the US-40 exit with plans to travel the approximate route of the National Road. At one point we turned off US-40 when we saw a Historic Route 40 sign. At that point but for GPS we were lost. Later we managed to escape from a standstill traffic jam by traveling I-70 for a few miles. Finally we got back on US-40 and wheeled across the historic Wheeling Suspension Bridge into West Virginia, a memorable experience! Day’s end found us at a KOA near Washington PA, a good place to refill our little propane tank and do nine days worth of laundry.

    It looks like the Wheeling Suspension Bridge has been closed to traffic for nearly a year but is scheduled for restoration and preservation beginning in 2021. Although it might never again be used for vehicular traffic, it’s still an awesome historic site that is worth a visit especially if you groove on the history of our nation’s highways.

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
