Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

Northbound on Business US 220 as it meets PA 56.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

A right turn begins the duplex. PA 56 is the mainline at this split. To the left, PA 56 east runs only a few miles to the southsouthwest before ending at US 30.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The duplex is not very long. Soon an END sign for Business US 220 appears. PA 56 makes a turn to the left to meet I-99/US 220. Technically, Business US 220 should follow PA 56 to meet US 220.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The north end of Bedford's Business US 220. Some 30 miles to the north, Altoona and Tyrone have another Business US 220, which has three duplexes: PA 453, PA 764, and PA 36.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

PA 56 meets I-99/US 220 at a diamond interchange.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

Now on PA 56 east approaching the same interchange from the other direction.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The exit to southbound I-99/US 220 is approached first. Business US 220 should start here.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

Instead, Business US 220 starts at the junction with the Old US 220 with no extension along PA 56 to I-99/US 220. PA 56 east turns right as Business US 220 begins to the right at the intersection ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The view from the beginning of southbound Business US 220. The duplex and business route begin just ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The northern end of the Business US 220/PA 56 duplex looking south.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

Back to the southern split, Business US 220 makes a left and heads to an interchange with the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which is the I-70/I-76 duplex in this area..
