PA 419(N-S)/PA 897(S-N) Duplex

PA 419 and PA 897 form a wrong-way duplex through for one mile through Schaefferstown in Lebanon County. PA 501 joins PA 419/PA 897 for part of the multiplex.

Heading east on PA 419/PA 897 just east of PA 501. The PA 419/PA 897 duplex lasts for a block or two on each side of the triplex with PA 501.

Two blocks ahead, PA 419 splits off to the north.

PA 419(N-S)/PA 501(S-N)/PA 897(S-N) Triplex

PA 501 joins PA 419/PA 897 for a few blocks through Schaefferstown in Lebanon County.

Southbound on PA 501 approaching the PA 419/PA 897 duplex.

When I-99 is completed between I-80 and Williamsport, the current US 220/PA 44 wrong-way duplex will become an I-99/US 220/PA 44 duplex, with PA 44 running the opposite direction as I-99 and US 220. Until then, PA 419/PA 501/PA 897 remains the only PA triplex with two routes running in one direction (PA 501 and PA 897) and another in the opposite direction (PA 419). Technically, US 222/PA 72/PA 272 falls in the same category, but PA 272 is unsigned.

Here is the view of the western split from PA 501 southbound as the route joins the PA 419/PA 897 multiplex. The signs are abbreviated, using double arrows with a single shield for PA 897 and PA 419. PA 419 southbound and PA 897 northbound split a quarter mile to the right.

 


Jason Ilyes 2/8/02

Across the road, PA 419 is also signed with a double arrow. The mileages shown are: Shaefferstown 1, Cornwall 6, Lebanon 7.

In this photo, PA 501 splits from PA 419/PA 897 just ahead at the eastern split in Schaefferstown. This photo shows the view along PA 419 northbound/PA 501 southbound/PA 897 southbound. PA 501 follows this stretch of road, and yet a JCT PA 501 shield is posted for the split. The triplex does not have any reassurance signs to explicity designate the road.

Reassurance shields heading eastward on the triplex. The NORTH PA 419 shield is not posted.

 


Jay Rotz 5/02

This intersection is the eastern split. PA 501 heads to the south from here. PA 419/PA 897 continues toward the east, signed north/south, and splits two blocks ahead; see PA 419/PA 897 above.

Another view of the same intersection. The traffic signals are installed with one overhead and one on the street corner for each direction.
