Pennsylvania Turnpike - Abandoned Roadways and Tunnels
Here are some good websites with photos and information about the two sections of the Turnpike that were abandoned when open-cut 4-lane bypasses were built in the 1960s to eliminate the 2-lane tunnel bottlenecks at Laurel Hill, Ray's Hill, and Sideling Hill.
Several of these websites also have a lot of general information about the Turnpike.
