A Brief History

220

Like Reading, Bedford has two business routes: Business US 30 and Business US 220. A few years after the US 220 bypass was completed by 1970, Business US 220 was signed along the old route from Cessna at current Exit 3 of I-99/US 220 south through Bedford to a couple of miles south of Bedford Springs. The business route is known as Richard Street in Bedford.

Timothy Reichard 12/22/02

The north end of Business US 220 is indicated along Business US 220/PA 56, which follows the old US 220 alignment. PA 56 makes a turn to the left to meet I-99/US 220. Technically, Business US 220 should follow PA 56 to meet US 220.

PA 56 west makes a left while Business US 220 ends. Ahead is the old US 220 alignment, which leads north to Altoona's Business US 220.

PA 56 meets I-99/US 220 at a diamond interchange, where Business US 220 should end.
