US 22(E-W)/US 522(N-S) Duplex

22 522

United States Routes 22 and 522 join for a long 22-mile duplex from Mount Union to Lewistown in Mifflin County.


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

US 22/US 522 traverses rural Mifflin County paralleling the neighboring mountains. This view is near the new southwestern split.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

US 522 now meets US 22 here. The route was relocated in the late 1990s to bypass Mount Union to the east. The road approaching the intersection here from the bottom is US 22, but used to be US 22/US 522.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

This road is the new US 522, which crosses the Juniata River and the Huntingdon/Mifflin County line.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

The bridge widens at the north end as the road nears the intersection.

The southwestern split as seen from US 22/US 522.

 


Timothy Reichard 11/25/05

About 22 miles to the northeast, US 22/US 522 is routed over new northern Lewistown bypass, which opened on November 21, 2005. This photo was taken on the fifth day since the opening ceremony. The new freeway is built on a ridge overlooking the valley containing Lewistown and the Juniata River.

 


Timothy Reichard 11/25/05

The interchange shown serves both the US 22/US 322/US 522 expressway and Electric Avenue (pre-1950s US 322). US 322 joins the duplex to form the US 22/US 322/US 522 triplex.

 


Timothy Reichard 11/25/05

A closer view of the new stack interchange. The ramp to the right leads to Electric Avenue, the old main drag leaving Lewistown on its north side. The interchange with US 322 is comprised of the freeway on the hillside ahead and the blue bridges connecting the two bypasses. US 22/US 522 curves to the right on the lower blue bridge to join US 322.

 


Timothy Reichard 11/25/05

Now on US 322 eastbound approaching the same interchange. US 22/US 522 joins from the right and continues straight ahead.

Westbound on US 22/US 522 at the start of both the duplex and the northern bypass of Lewistown.

 

 

US 22(E-W)/Old US 522(N-S) Duplex (Lewistown)

22

US 22/US 522 used to enter Lewistown before the northern Lewistown bypass was completed on November 21, 2005.


Timothy Reichard 11/25/05

On November 21, 2005, the routing of US 22/US 522 was shifted from the decade-old route through Lewistown (the fork to the right) to the new northern Lewistown bypass (begins straight ahead). This photo was taken four days after the bypass was opened, and one piece of it was still closed as shown here.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

US 22/US 522 passed through Lewistown on Fourth Street and Juniata Street. In 2005, this route became Business US 22.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

Near the middle of Lewistown, US 22 and US 522 used to split, both bound for expressway duplexes with US 322. US 322 does not venture near here, but is a mile ahead via either route. Business US 22 now follows the mainline here, under the sign for US 22/US 322 east.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

US 522 south in Lewistown led to the partial interchange with US 22 west to begin the duplex.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

The old, first reassurance shields southwestbound in Lewistown.

 


Timothy Reichard 1/8/03

Two blocks from the northeastern split, PA 103 ends at Business US 22 (formerly US 22/US 522). These overhead guide signs were posted on US 22 west/US 522 south.

 


Timothy Reichard 8/20/05

Signs for both the duplex and PA 103 at the latter's northern terminus.

 

 

 

US 22(E-W)/Old US 522(N-S) Duplex (Mount Union)

22

US 22/US 522 used to extend from Lewistown to the current intersection of US 22 and PA 747, adding a half mile to the west of the current duplex.


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

Here is the approach to the old southwestern split on US 22 eastbound. The old southwestern split is now the northern terminus of PA 747. The current split can be seen from the old split if standing at the old split's intersection.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

PA 747 used to end in Mount Union at US 522. When the two-lane eastern bypass was completed, US 522 was relocated to the bypass, and PA 747 was extended along old US 522 to meet US 22. PA 747 no longer meets US 522. This bridge contains the northernmost segment of PA 747. This view is looking south.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

Turning around and looking from the other end of the bridge, US 22 is incorrectly signed as PA 22. PA 747 ends just ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 4/6/02

Here is a closer view of the intersection.

Here is a close-up view of the signs at the signalized intersection. Lewistown is 22 miles to the northeast.
