The PA 45 interchange is a simple diamond interchange.

At the right is the end of the offramp, and PA 45 is below.

Three of the four new bridges for the PA 147 upgrade were completed in 2001. The fourth will go here, an second overpass over PA 45.

The Milton exits sign is in the middle of this interchange.

Now we've exited PA 147 and are traveling below on PA 45 eastbound. There is one overpass for PA 147. The second overpass will go behind it.

A closer view. PA 45 is being widened to handle the interchange traffic. The onramp to PA 147 southbound is at the lower right.

Now we approach in the opposite direction, westbound on PA 45. There is a home very close to the interchange.

On the left, land is cleared for the new lanes and overpass.

On the right, another view of the excavations for the new lanes.

New PA 45 lanes, probably future turning lanes, are now a mess of dirt by a barrier.
