PA 61(N-S)/PA 895(W-E) Duplex

PA 61 and PA 895 join for 2 miles through Deer Lake in Schuylkill County.

Southeastbound on the new PA 61/PA 895. PennDOT finished reconstructing and widening this section of PA 61 in 2002. The eastern split, shown here, only recently consisted of an All Turns lane for traffic ultimately making a left turn onto PA 895. The SIGNAL AHEAD sign is one of the few in the area.

The new All Turns lane. PA 895 follows this lane and then wraps back to the left to meet PA 61 again at the traffic signal ahead.

The new traffic signal at the eastern split. PA 61 south continues ahead toward Reading.

Westbound on PA 895 at the eastern split. Deer Lake is two miles to the west.

A closer view of the eastern split. New signs were posted with the completion of the widening project.

Old reassurance shields from before the widening project. PA 61/PA 895 used to have a grass median. Now the highway is divided by a jersey barrier.

New signs that replaced the ones in the previous photo. This shield style is common among new signs. Note that in the PA 61 shield, the diagonal lines bounding the body of the keystone symbol are not parallel to the diagonal lines bounding the top part of the keystone. Those lines are typically parallel on older signs.

To the west in Deer Lake, PA 61 and PA 895 split apart.

 


Timothy Reichard 1/10/03

Southbound on PA 61 in Deer Lake. The right turn for PA 895 west is signed well in advance of the right turn. The turn is after the yellow-orange left curve/right side road sign in the background.
