US 6 and PA 287 join for a 3 mi way duplex from Wellsboro to Stokesdale in Tioga County. Bicycle Routes G and Y join for 8 mi along US 6 from PA 362 east of Ansonia to PA 287 north of Wellsboro.
US 6 and PA 287 meet at the southern split in Wellsboro. Both routes split from PA 660 at this intersection and head north out of the town.
Here is a closer view of the intersection where US 6, PA 287, and PA 660 meet. PA 287/PA 660 approaches the intersection going straight ahead, while US 6/PA 660 approach from the right. Shields for US 6/PA 287 can be seen leaving the intersection straight head.
From the other side of the intersection, heading south, signs show that US 6 and PA 287 go separate ways with PA 660.
This signs stand along westbound US 6/PA 660 approaching the southern split.
David also shows three views of the northern split, three miles north of Wellsboro. In this view facing north, a single lane continues straight ahead and connects to two-lane PA 287. US 6 curves to the west.
From the north, PA 287 stops at US 6 to see these shields.
From the west, US 6 meets PA 287 at a Y-interchange. Bike Route Y, which mainly follows US 6 across the northern tier of Pennsylvania, splits with Bike Route G here at the eastern split of a Bike G/Bike Y duplex along US 6. Bike G joins Bike Y and US 6 from PA 362 to PA 287 and then splits off to the north along PA 287.
The first reassurance marker for US 6 west of the US 6/PA 287 (and Bike G/Bike Y) duplex is cosigned with a Bike Y sign, but without a Bike G sign. David speculates that the Bike G signs may be sparsely signed because it may be relocated along an old rail trail in the near future.
The Bike G/Bike Y duplex is completely signed in some places along US 6, such as here, further west of the Bike G/Bike Y and US 6/PA 287 split.
