The PA 42/PA 487 duplex follows the hilly countryside of Columbia County to reach Catawissa. This photo was shot south of town.

In the center of town, the two routes split here at a five-way intersection. The duplex enters along the diagonal street. Both PA 42 and PA 487 form duplexes with US 11 just to the north, one on each side of Bloomsburg.

This view is from the next street to the right, SR 2018. PA 42/PA 487 meets the northern split from the diagonal street. The arrow pointing down to the left is correct—a rare usage of a downward diagonal arrow.

Taking the diagonal street toward the south, the confirmation shields are posted here on the sidewalk.

Less than a mile to the south, the two routes split and separately ascend a hill.

Here is a closer view of the two uphill roads. PA 42's next stop is Centralia, the abandoned coal fire town. PA 487 heads to Knoebel's Amusement Resort. Both routes end at PA 61 to the south.

PA 42 and PA 487 are signed separately along PA 487 northbound at the southern split. PA 487 descends the steep hill, curves to meet PA 42 at a sharp angle, and meets a stop sign.

Here is a closer view of the intersection, complete with PA 487 signs visible to both routes.
