The Sideling Hill Tunnel near Breezewood, PA - One the more famous abandoned roads is 13 mile former part of the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Breezewood, PA. Opened in 1940, the PA Turnpike was the first freeway in the US, but the four lane road had the two lane tunnels by late the 50's that were congested.
