Shoemakersville, Pennsylvania: Graffiti Bridge

A 100-year-old road bridge, now part of a walking trail, is a magnet for people with spray paint. Unusually convenient nearby parking for an abandoned bridge, explaining its tagging appeal.

W. Shore Drive, Shoemakersville, PA
From PA-61 in Morgantown turn north (no stoplight) onto Shackamaxon St., which becomes Kindts Corner Rd and then W. Shore Drive. Follow for three miles. You'll see a pulloff on the right with a Bridge Closed sign. The bridge is just past the sign.

Graffiti Bridge

Graffiti Bridge on Lake Ontelaunee is a three span reinforced concrete arch bridge that was built in 1928 to cross the newly created Ontelaunee Reservoir. The road has been moved but the bridge has been incorporated into the lake trail and left to the artists. Test your skills and see how long the other painters leave your masterpiece.
