Newell Toll Bridge
Posted July 20, 2009, by Sherpes

The Pittsburgh Hash House Harriers had their annual Mega Hash event in this area, and towards the end of the event, crossed the Ohio River using this bridge as pedestrians. They noticed that there is a toll of five cents ($0.05) for pedestrians, according to the posted toll fees sign, and noticed you don't have a picture of it, so here it is.
