PA 31(E-W)/PA 281(N-S) Duplex

31 281

Pennsylvania Routes 31 and 281 join for a half mile through Somerset in Somerset County.


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

PA 31 east meets PA 281 and uses two one-way streets in Somerset. At the western edge of town, PA 31 turns south from Main Street for a block to meet PA 281 here at Tayman Avenue.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

More signs at the same intersection. PA 31 turns left onto Tayman Avenue/PA 281, and the duplex begins.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

Tayman Avenue becomes one-way Patriot Street.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

There are lots of reassurance signs along Patriot Street for PA 31/PA 281 as well as trailblazers for US 219, which bypasses Somerset to the east.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

At Center Avenue, Patriot Street is one block south of PA 601's southern end, which ends on Main Street/PA 31 west/PA 281 south. Trucks are urged to continue to the east end of town to reach PA 601 rather than going through the center of town.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

The eastern split is around the next bend, and overhead signs indicate the upcoming lane designations.

 

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

At the eastern end of town, PA 31 east/PA 281 north turns left onto Pleasant Avenue to return to Main Street.

 


Timothy Reichard 6/22/03

One block to the north, PA 31 east resumes following Main Street, while PA 281 splits to the north. Each route leads to a US 219 interchange to the east.
