The Donora-Webster Bridge is a truss bridge spanning the Monongahela River between the borough of Donora, Pennsylvania and the village of Webster in Rostraver Township, Pennsylvania. Originally built in 1908 to serve rail traffic, the bridge was eventually fully converted in 1938 for automobile use only. The structure connects Route 837 on the west bank of the river and Route 906 on the east side. As of July 14, 2009, the Donora-Webster bridge was closed due to its structural deficiency; its future remains uncertain. The closest open crossings are at Route 1022 (Stan Musial Bridge) to the south (upstream), and the Route 136 (Monongahela City Bridge) to the north (downstream), a several-mile detour either way.
