PA 253 and PA 865 form a same-way duplex for 1 mi in Glasgow in Cambria County.
This photo was shot just north of the southern split in Glasgow.
PA 865 and PA 253 split here at the northern split, north of Glasgow. PA 253 ends in Houtzdale.
Just north of the split, PA 253 southbound traffic is directed to make a left turn at the PA 865 junction. The pair of signs behind the PA 253 shield are the directional shields for PA 865.
Here is a closer view of the northern split. PA 253 turns left to join PA 865, both southbound.
The southbound reassurance shields stand the northern split.
In the middle of the village of Glasgow, PA 253 and PA 865 split. PA 253 ends in Van Ormer, and PA 865 ends near Bellwood.
Here are the signs along PA 253 northbound as it meets PA 865.
Just ahead at the southern split, the little white signs are posted with a mileage sign.
Finally, here is the view of PA 865 northbound as PA 253 joins it at the southern split. PA 253 has the lower number of the two routes, and so the duplex is designated SR 0253 on the little white signs. This designation means that the PA 865 segment ends when the duplex starts; hence, there is an END little white sign for SR 0865.
