Dead Bugs on Bridge Result in Smelly Situation
TUNKHANNOCK, Pa. -- Dead bugs on a well-traveled bridge in the Tunkhannock area are leaving both drivers and pedestrians a little grossed out by both the look and smell. The bugs are mayflies and the smell is caused by their decomposition. It's typical around bodies of water during the summer. People who live in Tunkhannock may be used to the dead mayflies piling up on their bridge, but PennDOT is not. Cleaning up mayflies is a first for some workers.
