Future I-99(N-S)/US 220(N-S) Duplex

I-99 and US 220 form a 52 mile duplex from north of Bedford to south of Bald Eagle in Bedford and Blair Counties. The duplex will be extended to Williamsport, ultimately resulting in a 135 mile multiplex, surpassing I-70/I-76's record multiplex length in PA of 89 miles by 50%. This page covers the current US 220 (Future I-99) corridor from I-80 east to US 15.


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Here US 220 has exited from I-80 at Exit 178, the eastern split of I-80/US 220 (I-80/Future I-99/US 220). US 220 makes a left turn onto its two-lane mainline roadway here, passing back under I-80.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

From I-80 to the US 220 expressway to the north, there is only one intersection along this two-lane road. This is where US 220 meets Belle Springs Road.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Three miles from I-80, US 220 becomes an expressway. The first exit is for PA 477 near Salona.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The PA 477 interchange. Here we are still on the two-lane road, and the offramp leads to PA 477. The interchange is a diamond interchange with one cloverleaf.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Between the offramp and onramp, US 220 widens to a four-lane interstate-grade expressway.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The expressway is a bypass to Mill Hall and Lock Haven, both of which PA 150 passes through. PA 150 is a pre-expressway alignment of US 220. Much of the US 220 expressway guide signs have unnumbered exits. US 220 was supposed to become an extension of I-180, and so the exits along both US 220 west of Williamsport and I-180 east and south of Williamsport were unnumbered until 2001. I-180 has been numbered as a north-south interstate (but is signed east-west), and US 220 remains unnumbered for now, though eventually this expressway will become part of I-99 with numbered exits.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The PA 150 interchange is a trumpet interchange. PA 150 is a quarter mile to the north, and a connecting road extends from there to make this interchange. The US 220 exit sign on the left is quite an error, implying that US 220 exits its freeway.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The supposed US 220 exit is actually the PA 120 exit. PA 120 was once US 120.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

At the interchange, the guide signs are correct. PA 120 ends at this partial diamond interchange.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The next exit along US 220 northbound is for Woolrich Road, which serves the McElhattan area.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The next exit is US 220's third meeting of PA 150. US 220 is signed concurrently with PA 150 along the US 220/PA 150 duplex near Milesburg. Then this US 220 expressway meets PA 150 at Mill Hall and again here at PA 150's end near Avis.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

US 220 next meets up with PA 44 and forms a wrong-way duplex as a bypass to Jersey Shore. The duplex is covered on the US 220/PA 44 page.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Past the Jersey Shore bypass, US 220 narrows to two lanes near PA 287's southern terminus. There were plans to bypass US 220 with a new expressway alignment, the Susquehanna Beltway project, but these were deferred in 2004 to an unknown later date.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

PA 287 meets US 220 at a traffic signal. The first traffic signal to the south along US 220 is in Port Matilda, some 60 miles to the southwest.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

US 220 is a two-lane road for less than a mile. US 220 becomes a four-lane divided highway from near PA 287 to the western end of the Williamsport bypass.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Fourth Street is the old alignment of US 220 before I-180 and the southern Williamsport bypass were built.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The Fourth Street interchange is a partial interchange, allowing only northbound-northbound and southbound-southbound access. Williamsport Area High School get its own sign at this exit. US 220 becomes an expressway here, the Williamsport bypass.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The Reach Road interchange, a full diamond interchange, is next.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

Reach Road provides access to the southern parts of western Williamsport.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/3/02

The next interchange is for US 15. This interchange, once revamped into an expressway-to-expressway interchange, will be the northern split of I-99/US 220 and the southern split of I-99/US 15, i.e., I-99 will leave US 220 and join US 15. US 220 continues along US 15 southbound and I-180 eastbound, the latter just beginning at the same interchange. See the I-180/US 15/US 220 page.
