PA 104(N-S)/Truck PA 45(W)/Truck PA 304(E) (Mifflinburg) Duplex

Truck PA 45/Truck PA 304 joins PA 104 for a 2 mile duplex south of Mifflinburg in Union County. Truck PA 45 runs westbound along PA 104 northbound while Truck PA 304 eastbound follows PA 104 southbound.

The northern split is at the western terminus of Truck PA 45 and Truck PA 304 at PA 45 in Mifflinburg. Truck PA 304 begins and Truck PA 45 ends at this intersection. PA 104 also ends at this intersection, and PA 304 ends a few blocks to the east.

Closer to the intersection, PA 45 shields stand. A few years ago, there was a single PA 45 shield with a double arrow underneath.

The view of PA 45 eastbound shows both PA 104 and Truck PA 304 signs. The northern terminus of PA 304 is at a narrow intersection that makes turning from PA 45 to PA 304 (or vice versa) difficult or impossible, so this truck route provides access around Mifflinburg between those two routes. Truck PA 45 runs only westbound, while Truck PA 304 runs only eastbound. The route is always signed as TRUCK TO, probably because Truck PA 45 and Truck PA 304 are each one-way routes that meet their parent routes only once.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

Two miles to the south along PA 104 (and only a half mile from its eastern terminus at PA 304), Truck PA 304 leaves PA 104 at the southern split. Note that White Springs is two miles to the west.

Truck PA 45(W)/Truck PA 304(E) (Mifflinburg) Half-Duplex

Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

At the southern split of PA 104 and Truck PA 45/Truck PA 304, Truck PA 45 joins PA 104.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

The first and only reassurance marker for Truck PA 304 stands just past the intersection with PA 104. Here the view is looking eastward. The back faces of the signs of the previous photo are easily seen in this photo.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

About a half mile to the east, but now looking westward, the first and only reassurance marker for Truck PA 45 stands a few feet from the route's eastern terminus.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

Between the reassurance markers stands a single little white sign, showing that the truck route follows SR 3004 in Union County.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

The eastern terminus of Truck PA 45/Truck PA 304 is at PA 304 about 2 miles south of Mifflinburg. The PA 304 shield points to the eastbound direction. Though not signed, since the truck route is intended for traffic wanting to continue eastbound on PA 304, westbound PA 304 heads left from here.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/19/01

At the same intersection with the view of westbound PA 304, Truck PA 45 shields direct truck traffic based on the intended direction once meeting PA 45. Truck PA 45 begins here, and Truck PA 304 ends here. Trucks wishing to go eastbound when reaching PA 45 in Mifflinburg two miles to the north can bypass PA 304's western terminus (the intersection that inhibits truck turns) by following a different street in Mifflinburg to reach PA 45. Note that White Springs is still two miles to the west.
