US 220 and PA 350 join for less than a mile from Bald Eagle to I-99's current northern terminus in Blair County.
Three routes meet at this intersection in Bald Eagle: PA 350 from the north and south, US 220 from the east and south, and Business US 220 from the west. I-99 begins less than a mile straight ahead. This is the view on PA 350 southbound approaching the split.
Nearer to the intersection, Business US 220 is also signed.
Here is the view along US 220 southbound. US 220 used to continue straight ahead before the I-99/US 220 expressway was built, but was rerouted onto the expressway upon completion south of Bald Eagle. The old US 220 became Business US 220. When I-99 is completed from Bald Eagle to State College, US 220 will follow that expressway, never reaching this intersection again. Business US 220 will probably be extended to the left here to meet the expressway, making a Business US 220/PA 350 duplex. Current US 220 north of this intersection will be downgraded to SR 3040.
From the south, JCT US 220/PA 350 shields stand to announce the intersection.
Just ahead, Business US 220 ends.
At the intersection, PA 350 is signed to head only to the left, but also heads southbound to the right.
Turning right onto the duplex, US 220/PA 350 soon split. PA 350 turns left to head to the east while US 220 joins I-99, which begins at the southern split.
Here is the left turn where PA 350 splits from US 220 and I-99 begins straight ahead. The two-lane road becomes an onramp to the I-99/US 220 expressway, which ends at the interchange. The stub end will connect to the I-99/US 220 extension to Port Matilda and points northeast once construction begins in late 2002.
PA 350 descends Bald Eagle Mountain to reach I-99/US 220. This is the view of the southern split along PA 350 northbound. I-99 begins to the left.
Here is a closer view of the northern terminus of I-99 and southern split of US 220/PA 350.
Turning right onto US 220/PA 350 northbound, directional shields stand where reassurance shields normally stand because the northern split is just ahead.
A little further ahead, US 220 will make a right turn onto the original two-lane highway. Trucks are encourages to follow that route if heading to I-80.
Here is a closer view of the northern split from the fourth direction (the other three are shown in the first few photos). The State College mileage sign was recently replaced, and the "21" is covering up another number, which may be the future mileage after I-99/US 220 is completed to State College by 2006.
