The moaning of Talamini Road


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.

    Did it with a friend and if you follow specific directions, and ONLY IF, you will hear a noise. Sound like a muffled whine that everyone in the car could hear, as if you had hit an animal. Tried it multiple times and didn’t occur going eastbound or at a different speed.

    ive been down talamini its not really a moan…its like a screech just before the SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY SIGN everyone in the car heard it. It feels like a bolt of energy goes through you when you hear it all of the windows MUST BE UP and the air must be off

    I have something to tell you guys about Talamini Rd in bridgewater. i have lived in brigdewater my whole life (16 years) and the “moaning” sound on this road is not true. i have been on this road so many times and it happens like every other time. the “moaning” sound has something to do with the wind hitting something on your car or your tires hitting the road weird, im not sure…now the “moaning” sound is heard to be saying slow down. just thought i let you know about Talamini Rd
