Before PA 147 meets I-80 and I-180, the super-2 becomes a four lane, interstate-standard freeway. This is the original freeway.

Separate from the PA 147 upgrade, I-80 is being widened to 6 lanes from US 15 east across the West Branch Susquehanna River to PA 147 & I-180. Reconstruction of the cloverleaf interchanges with US 15 and PA 147 & I-180 will be finished in October 2002 as part of the project.

Rounding the bend, a few ramps to/from I-80 are closed. PA 147 ends just ahead.

The overpasses ahead are reconstructed and carry I-80.

PA 147 ends at I-80. I-180 begins here, taking up PA 147 old, temporary routing all the way to Williamsport.
