Edward Braddock's British army widened Washington's road and extended it to the Monongahela River. Braddock's road was an amazing engineering feat. Hundreds of men cut a 12 foot wid swath through the forest for Braddock’s 2,400 soldiers, 12 cannons, about 100 wagons and a herd of cattle. After the French and Indian War, this road became a main route west until the adjacent National Road  reached the Ohio River in 1818.
