A wider, snowier iew of the eastern split. I-78 curves to the left over PA 309

Now in the opposite direction at the opposite split. I-78/PA 309 splits here at the western split. Originally, there was only the PA 309 freeway. I-78 was later built, and this interchange was reconfigured to make I-78 the mainline, with PA 309 entering/exiting on ramps to its freeway.
