US 222 and US 422 join for 3 miles through Wyomissing, West Reading, and Reading in Berks County.
US 222 southbound at the northern split interchange with US 422. PA 12 ends at this interchange and follows the another freeway, the Warren Street Bypass, to the east; US 422 westbound follows the bypass to the west. US 222/US 422 follows the freeway shown above, the West Shore Bypass, which parallels Tulpehocken Creek and the Schuylkill River.
Just ahead, newly painted bridges highlight the interchange with US 222 and US 422 at the northern split.
Between the ends of the duplex, US 222/US 422 meets two interchanges, each signed here.
Reassurance shields southeastbound. Beyond the overpass is the first exit of the duplex, a diamond interchange with Nouth Wyomissing Boulevard, which serves the Wyomissing.
The second interchange is with Business US 422, locally known as Penn Street. This was once part of the William Penn Highway (former US 22) that stretched across Pennsylvania.
The third interchange is the southern split. US 222 exits in the median.
The southern split of US 222/US 422 uses an unusual interchange, a single point diamond interchange. Traffic from US 222/US 422 exits and enters from the median rather than from/to the right lanes of the freeway, and all four ramps meet at a single intersection. Straight ahead is US 422 east, behind the camera is US 222/US 422, to the right is US 222 south, and to the left is Business US 222 north.
Now facing north on US 222 at the northern end of PA 10. US 222 turns left above to join the US 422 freeway. Between the two overpasses is the single-point diamond interchange. Though PA 10 begins immediately to the right, the US 422 and I-176 freeways provide a faster route south to Morgantown.
Westbound on US 422 at the southern split. The exit for US 222 south and Business US 222 north is at the left in the median. The US 222/US 422 duplex begins here.
US 222 north/US 422 west in the middle of the duplex. The Reading Regional Airport is a few miles ahead on US 222, north of the northern split.
US 222/US 422 meets PA 12, one of Pennsylvania's newest state routes, at the northern split.
Nearing the northern split, the first exit is for PA 12 east. US 422 exits US 222/US 422 next.
After PA 12, US 422 exits, while US 222 continues northward.
