US 322(E-W)/Old US 522(S-N) Duplex

322
OLD
522

United States Routes 322 and 522 used to join for a quarter mile through Lewistown in Mifflin County.


Timothy Reichard 1/8/03

Southbound on US 522, entering Lewistown. US 322 is the eastern Lewistown bypass, which follows the overpass shown here. US 322 and US 522 meet at a squashed, diamond interchange. The right turn before the overpass takes you onto US 22 west/US 322 west/US 522 south (formerly US 322 alone), which leads toward the new US 22/US 522 northern Lewistown bypass. Before that bypass was opened on November 21, 2005, US 522 joined US 322 in the opposite direction here, and US 22 was still rerouted through the city on current Business US 22.

Past the overpass, the "ramp" to US 322 east is composed of surface streets. US 522 used to follow US 322 east here.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

The street curves to the right to become a short onramp with little merge area. The US 322/US 522 duplex thus began. This stretch is now US 22/US 322.

 


Timothy Reichard 1/8/03

The short merge area where US 522 joins US 322. The next exit, a quarter mile away, was for US 522 south. US 522 joined the freeway to hop from one exit to the next.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

New signs went up in preparation of the opening of the northern Lewistown bypass and the relocation of US 22 and US 522. This exit for US 522 south no longer serves US 522, and so new signs say Charles Street instead.

 


Timothy Reichard 10/14/02

US 322 east/US 522 south on the eastern Lewistown bypass. Both routes headed toward long duplexes with US 22 (and still do today): US 22/US 522 for 22 miles southwest of Lewistown, and US 22/US 322 for 55 miles southeast of Lewistown.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

The story for US 522 north was similar. Here US 522 north swung under the freeway and joined on the other side, but then immediately exits again, bound for Selinsgrove, PA and US 522's end.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

US 522 north merged onto the US 322 (now also US 22) bypass here. A set of abandoned railroad tracks crossed the short US 322/US 522 duplex.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

Reassurance shields were posted for the duplex, which ended just ahead.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

A few feet after merging, US 322 and US 522 used to split. US 522 rejoined its 1920s alignment eastward along Walnut Street toward Selinsgrove, while US 322 continues on the Lewistown bypass. Today, US 522 joins the freeway here instead of leaving it, and this interchange marks the beginning of the US 22/US 322/US 522 triplex.

 


Timothy Reichard 12/31/03

The old northern split as seen from US 322 eastbound (now US 22/US 322/US 522). This section of US 322 had been reconstructed as part of the high-speed interchange with the northern Lewistown bypass (US 22/US 522). This US 522 ramp leads indirectly to US 522 north, and US 522 south used to merge ahead and begin the former US 322/US 522 duplex. Now that the northern Lewistown bypass is completed, this exit marks the split where US 522 leaves US 22/US 322.
