PA 44(N-S)/PA 144(N-S) Duplex

PA 44 and PA 144 join for a 5 mile same-way duplex from Carter Camp to Oleona in Potter County.

PA 44/PA 144 is a curious duplex in the middle of nowhere, Potter County. The duplex is one of the few in the state where a three-digit route is duplexed with the parent route (PA 44). Here in Abbott Township, near the northern split, the township has signed the duplex on this unusual green sign. PA 44 and PA 144 run through the Susquehannock State Forest, winding their way along the Little Kettle Creek valley.

The northern split is at Carter Camp. This is the view on PA 144 southbound approaching PA 44.

Just ahead, a mileage sign shows how close the nearest significant towns are. All three towns on the sign are sites of duplexes of PA 44 or PA 144: PA 120/PA 144 in Renovo, US 220/PA 44 in Jersey Shore, and US 6/PA 44 in Coudersport.

Next around the curve, PA 144 meets PA 44 at a Y-shaped intersection.

The third and final view of the northern split is here, as viewed from PA 44/PA 144 northbound as they split. So far, this photo is the first to show a house, which are scarce along the duplex. Where here is Carter Camp? Note the sign in the center of the photo.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Here is a closer view of the sign. Clearly, PA 44 and PA 144 split in downtown Carter Camp.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

One can turn right at the split and continue here on PA 144 northbound.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Alternatively, one can continue straight on PA 44 northbound as the road curves to the northwest toward Coudersport.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Five miles to the south, PA 44 and PA 144 meet at the southern split in Oleona. These signs are the confirmation shields and little white signs at the intersection.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Stepping back around the curve, mileages are shown along PA 44 northbound before meeting PA 144. PA 144 ends in Galeton to the north. Ole Bull State Park is just a mile away along PA 144 southbound.

Facing the other way, this is the hillside view of PA 44 southbound heading toward Jersey Shore.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Just ahead is another mileage sign. There seem to be more mileage signs in the vicinity of this duplex than near most.

 


David Slauenwhite 4/11/02

Here is the view along PA 144 southbound after splitting from PA 44.

Just ahead is a lone gas station along PA 144. The next town, Cross Fork, is barely larger in population than either Carter Camp or Oleona.
