Truck PA 45(E-W) (Spruce Creek)/PA 453(N-S) Duplex
Truck PA 45 and PA 453 join for 8 miles from Nealmont to Water Street in Huntingdon and Blair Counties.
PA 453 makes the southernmost segment of Truck PA 45's route, which is entirely cosigned with other routes (PA 350, PA 550, and PA 453). At the north end of the Truck PA 45/PA 453 duplex, the two routes begin by crossing the Little Juniata River.
Just behind the camera, Truck PA 45 leaves PA 550 and joins PA 453. PA 550 ends here.
Like the intersection of PA 350 and PA 550, the intersection of PA 453 and PA 550 is two splits in one: the western split of Truck PA 45/PA 550 and the northern split of Truck PA 45/PA 453. This view is from Truck PA 45 eastbound/PA 453 northbound. In Tyrone, one mile ahead, PA 453 meets unsigned Business US 220 to make another duplex.
Here is another view of the splits, this time from PA 453 southbound.
Following Truck PA 45 and PA 453, the two routes cross the Little Juniata River on this bridge.
The southern end of the duplex is unique. Here Truck PA 45 meets its parent route, and both versions of PA 45 end at the intersection.
Here is the view along PA 45 westbound as the road appraoches its end. Truck PA 45 is not mentioned here because there is no need for trucks to use the route from here.
Here is the intersection of PA 45 (lower left), PA 453 (left) and Truck PA 45/PA 453 (right).
Here is a close-up view of the signs at the southern end. PA 453 ends in Water Street, one mile to the south.
