Can you help me, please, to build a list of existing ghost bikes on state roads in the Pgh area?

I’ve got Route 51 in Aliquippa, Hopewell, and Moon.
I’ve got Old Stuebenville Pike near Hanky Farms.

I don’t know if Forbes at Dippy is a state road.

Can you tell me about any others, please? thank you

Forbes Ave is a state road, route 2108. PennDOT is doing work on it. They wouldn’t be doing that if it wasn’t.

It’s no longer there, but there  used to be one for “Chop” on Penn Ave at the food co-op parking lot until the property owner ask the family to remove it.  Sorry I only remember his nickname.

If there a ghost bike out Ardmore where the guy was killed commuting home a few years ago? That should be a state route.

I did some googling,

It was Michael McDermott killed on Ardmore Blvd.

And it was James (chop) Price killed on Penn.

I have video of the memorial service for James Price. I don’t recall if we chained up the bike that night, but we might have.
