PA 54(E-W)/PA 642(E-W) Duplex

PA 54 and PA 642 join for a half-mile, same-way duplex near Mausdale in Montour County.


Timothy Reichard 8/6/02

PA 54 follows Continental Boulevard, a rural, four-lane, divided highway linking US 11 and I-80 and useful for getting to I-80 eastbound by bypassing Bloomsburg on US 11. PA 642 joins for less than half a mile.

Just ahead, PA 642 splits off to the west. The road to the right connects to the original PA 54, just a few feet off the edge of the photo.

A closer view of the intersection. Traffic making a right turn onto the duplex does not stop.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/6/02

Signs at the same intersection, the western split. PA 54 runs concurrently with PA 44 in Turbotville, and, until a few years ago when the Danville river bridge was completed, PA 54 ran concurrently with US 11 for a block in Danville.

The western split seen along PA 54 eastbound. PA 642 leads directly to Milton along Liberty Valley Road.

A closer view of the western split. The yellow overhead lights in the distance mark the eastern split.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/6/02

Reassurance shields are absent in the eastbound direction because of the short length of the duplex. The first shield seen shows that PA 642 soon makes a left turn.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/6/02

The eastern split, where PA 642 leaves PA 54 and follows Jerseytown Road to its unnecessary duplex with PA 44.

Approaching the eastern split from the other direction, PA 54 westbound.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/6/02

The PA 54/PA 642 duplex begins here, while a right turn puts you on PA 642 eastbound.
