People have reported hearing a strange moaning on this Bridgewater Road. It’s all the usual tales, someone died in a car wreck & now their ghost haunts the road where it happened. This tale is different though: apparently if you drive west towards Country Club Rd, and drive at 35 MPH thru the curve past Red Lion Way you will hear a moaning, a distant wailing, which some believe is a warning to slow down. It only works is you are driving westbound, and only if you drive at 35 MPH. Drive eastbound, you won’t hear it. Go slower, you won’t hear it. Go faster and you’re crazy since there is a curve in the road. The question is: does it work, and if so what is it?
I drove this section about a half dozen times, back & forth at different speeds, and yes, you must be going 35 MPH and headed west. I did hear something. Faint and distant it almost sounded like a truck on a rumble strip. It was so faint I’m not sure if I would’ve noticed it had I not been looking for it. Did it sound like a moaning or wailing? Ummm, not really, but that’s me. I’m a skeptic so I can’t say this is worth going out of your way for, but if you’re nearby, why not? Maybe you will hear it too. I say it’s just a trick of acoustics, but it definitely is unusual.
