US 322 and PA 153 join for about 6 mi west of Clearfield in Clearfield County.
The highway is a four-lane, divided, sub-interstate-standard expressway with partially controlled access. The shoulder of the road is trimmed with red pebbles for a distinctive look.
I didn't see any traffic on the 6-mi highway when I doubled back toward Clearfield. Clearly the expressway did not need an upgrade to interstate standards. Much of this duplex is on fairly steep grade.
US 322 splits from PA 153 at the northern split in the Moshannon State Forest.
Here is the view of the northern split as approached from US 322 eastbound. There is a right turning lane that curves onto US 322/PA 153.
A few miles to the south, US 322/PA 153 begins to descend a steep hill to reach Clearfield. The highway becomes a reduced gear zone for trucks, which must stop here at the top of the hill.
