US 220(N-S)/US 322(E-W) Duplex

220 322

United States Routes 220 and 322 join for about 13 miles from Port Matilda to State College. The duplex was extended from the current Alternate US 220 & US 220/US 322 interchange in Martha Furnace to the new US 220 & US 322 & Park Avenue interchange north of State College upon completion of the Future I-99/US 220 freeway to the north.

There are tons of construction photos of the State College area I-99/US 220/US 322 projects on this site (mainly from State College north to Bellefonte) and on the project site (mainly west of State College).


Timothy Reichard 12/27/04

Southbound on the new US 220 at the eastern split with US 322. The US 220/Future I-99 and US 322/Mount Nittany Expressway merge here.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/4/01

Westbound along the duplex. These first reassurance shields were posted well before US 220 was relocated to this freeway in November 2002.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

US 220 north/US 322 east nearing State College. Before November 2002, this road was US 322 alone. Notice the grassy mound straight ahead and that the road curves through a mountain cut to the left. Before 2001, the road went straight through the mound, which was not there, and to the left was a hill with at least one residence on it. US 322 was relocated to make room for the interchange with Future I-99 and Scotia Road at the west end of the State College bypass. Now in 2002, the interchange is completed.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

US 220/US 322 now uses a clover leaf ramp of the Scotia Road interchange. Future I-99 is not completed to the west, but is done and open to the east as US 220/US 322.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

Looping around the interchange, the freeway begins as US 220/US 322. By 2007, an I-99 shield will fill the blank spot on the left sign. Also note the sign goof for covered-up Business US 322 East—the first digit in 322 is a 2!

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

Southbound on Alternate US 220 at the new route's end. Alternate US 220 ends at a trumpet interchange with US 220/US 322. Before November 2002, this was US 220 south meeting US 322, and Alternate US 220 did not exist.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

Alternate US 220 signs went up in October 2002, but were covered up until its commissioning in November 2002.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

New overhead signs were placed on the overpass. In October 2002, US 220/US 322 began as a duplex here. Now the duplex extends to the east.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

These reassurance shields stood at the end of the ramp from US 322 westbound to US 220 southbound. Now the ramp carries US 220/US 322. The ramp is partially merged here. This is the old eastern split, where Alternate US 220 (the old US 220) now ends.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

The eastern split was an interchange where busy US 322 meets busy US 220. Now the interchange handles US 220/US 322 and the new Alternate US 220, which was commissioned in November 2002 when US 220 was relocated onto US 322. This is US 322 westbound (before the US 220 relocation) approaching the interchange by descending down Skytop Mountain. When I-99 is completed in the area in 2004?, both US 220 and US 322 will be relocated to the new alignment, and this road will become SR 3042.

 


Geoff Hatchard 4/27/03

A spring view descending Skytop Mountain on US 220 south/US 322 west after the US 220 relocation. This is the same downhill stretch as seen in the previous, pre-relocation photo. ALT tabs have been added to green guide signs for Alternate US 220.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Here is the US 220 & US 322 trumpet interchange with the old overhead guide sign. US 220 is (for now) the main truck route to I-80.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

A new guide sign for the exit from US 220 north/US 322 east to itself. Before November 2002, this was the exit to US 322 east, while US 220 north continued straight ahead to Milesburg.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

From the south, US 322 used to split off from US 220 at this interchange. Now US 220/US 322 exits and Alternate US 220 begins straight ahead, but this photo is from before the route changes.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Just ahead, another I-80 trailblazer is signed here.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

New signs went up in October 2002. Above I-80 is the first Alternate US 220 sign, with the Alternate banner covered up until the following month. Above the US 322 shield is the new US 220 north shield, completely covered up.

 


Geoff Hatchard 4/27/03

The signs were uncovered in November 2002, and the US 220/US 322 duplex has been extended to State College ever since.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Here is the ramp from US 322 westbound (right to left over the overpass) to US 220 southbound (heads down to the left) from before the US 220 relocation. Now the ramp carries US 220/US 322 before and after merging with the mainline.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Three miles to the south, US 220 and US 322 split at this intersection in the heart of Port Matilda. The I-99 trailblazer is new as of Summer 2002. The US 220 relocation had no affect this far south.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Here is a closer view of the western split. US 322 heads west to an under-construction Future I-99/Future US 220/Future US 322 interchange and then a future Corridor-O interchange, while US 220 continues southwestward to the current alignment of I-99/US 220 in Bald Eagle. Port Matilda will be bypassed on three sides (north, west, and south) by I-99 and Corridor O freeways.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

The view from US 322 eastbound at the intersection has two sets of shields, including an END TRUCK SPEED 20 sign. US 322 descends into Port Matilda from the west, and trucks have a reduced gear and speed limit zone through the town to this intersection. The secondary road that continues forward here ascends Bald Eagle Mountain.

 


Timothy Reichard 7/14/2002

Here is a close-up view of the rightmost shield assembly and the mileages.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/5/01

This photo was taken at the western split in Port Matilda in Summer 2001. US 322 enters from the left and US 220 from behind. The variable message sign reads "Corr O Public Meeting" and announces the next public meeting to discuss interchange alternatives for the Corridor O project, which will connect the future Port Matilda Bypass (I-99/US 220/US 322, above) to I-80 somewhere near Philipsburg.
