    Re: unclear

    More context would help. The only thing I can think of, given so little information, is that he is going to his regular card game.

    Are you sure he didn't say "I am headed/heading to the bridge"?

    Re: unclear

    I can't see any other meaning than "They are driving towards the/a bridge". I can't explain why they missed out the article.

    That's rather different from what you quoted first. Which is it - and are you sure?

    Re: unclear

    If the speaker was being chased, then who are the 'they'? He might be able to guess where somebody ahead of him is going, but the only place anybody chasing him is going is behind him.

    Unless you can come up with full context, I can only conclude that you misheard.

    Maybe the character was not a native English speaker and didn't know how to use articles correctly.
