Old US 220(N-S)/PA 144(S-N) Duplex

US 220 and PA 144 joined for a 2-mile, wrong-way duplex from about 1 mile from Wingate to near Milesburg in Centre County. US 220 was relocated in November 2002 to a new expressway to the east. As a result, the old US 220 became Alternate US 220, including along the new Alternate US 220/PA 144 duplex.

This photo was shot at the end of the onramp from PA 144/PA 150 northbound to US 220 southbound/PA 144 northbound. One week earlier, the US 220 sign stood vertically.

In October 2002, one month before US 220 became Alternate US 220, covered-up Alternate banners were added.

One mile to the south, PA 144 split off from US 220 in Wingate.

Signs at the southern split along PA 144 southbound, which turned to join US 220.

Reassurance shields near the southern split. I-80 is 3 miles to the north, and the old US 220/PA 150 and PA 144/PA 150 duplexes were 2 miles to the north.

 

About halfway from the southern split to the northern one, US 220/PA 144 widened to a 4-lane non-freeway expressway, i.e., with interchanges and at-grade intersections. PA 144 split at the first exit, and PA 150 joined US 220 as far as I-80. PA 144/PA 150 have their own duplex, which also begins at the interchange shown here. Thus the interchange was the northern split of US 220/PA 144, still is the northern split PA 144/PA 150, and was the southern split of US 220/PA 150. The US 220 duplexes are now Alternate US 220 duplexes.

At the interchange, heading south, PA 144 joined US 220 for a wrong-way duplex and PA 150 for a same-way duplex. This was the beginning of the US 220/PA 144 duplex.

 

From the view of PA 144/PA 150 northbound at the same interchange, PA 144 is given priority over PA 150 on a green guide sign.

 

Just ahead, lots of shields to point one's way through the Milesburg Multiplex Mess. I should add here that two miles north of this interchange, US 220 left PA 150 and joined I-80, making a sixth duplex of five routes in the Bellefonte-Milesburg area (US 220/PA 144, US 220/PA 150, I-80/US 220, PA 144/PA 150, PA 144/PA 550, and PA 150/PA 550). After the US 220 relocation, the US 220/PA 144 and US 220/PA 150 duplexes were changed to Alternate US 220 duplexes. Both I-80/US 220 and I-80/Alternate US 220 duplexes now follows the Keystone Shortway to the north, adding a seventh duplex. Finally, US 220 now follows PA 26, making an eighth duplex.

 

Crossing the overpass, US 220/PA 144 access was via a cloverleaf ramp.
