A Brief History

219

Ridgway is home to one of the rarer breeds of US Highways: truck routes. US 219/PA 948 northbound descends a steep, curvy grade to enter Ridgway. Truck US 219 is a northbound alternative for trucks, which initially bypasses Ridgway to the east, loops around a straight angle to meet PA 120, and then follows PA 120 (Front Street and Depot Street) into Ridgway to reconenct to US 219/PA 948 in town. Southbound truck traffic takes US 219/PA 948 directly. The truck route and US 219 itself each have two runaway truck ramps for the descent.
