United States Business Route 220 and Pennsylvania Route 56 join for a half mile near Cessna in Bedford County.
Northbound on Business US 220 as it meets PA 56.
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.
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.
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.
PA 56 meets I-99/US 220 at a diamond interchange.
Now on PA 56 east approaching the same interchange from the other direction.
The exit to southbound I-99/US 220 is approached first. Business US 220 should start here.
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.
The view from the beginning of southbound Business US 220. The duplex and business route begin just ahead.
The northern end of the Business US 220/PA 56 duplex looking south.
