Conley's Motel, New Stanton

Route 70 is in the foreground. The PA Turnpike is in the background. You can see just a piece of New Stanton Elementary School in the bottom right. It was torn down and the Hempfield Hunt Club is there now. You can see a small pedestrian bridge going over Route 70 for kids to walk to school. This was the 'old' bridge that was severely damaged at some point and completely replaced. An overheight truck hit it. The 'new' pedestrian bridge was removed in 2017 when PennDOT widened 70 and replaced the Center Avenue bridge. The 'new' bridge was dismantled and moved to Fayette County for a bike path.
