Pennsylvania Roads - PA 60

PA 60



No, I didn't take this sign for the destination of Beaver. It's the fact that the "East" road heads west from PA 60 with a non-cutout shield, even on a BGS, with an exit tab that's part of the sign. PA 576 will one day be a beltway and maybe I-576, and the directions will make sense. Also, this route will be I-376, extended west and north from its current terminus.


Heading north past Exits 10 and 11 to the Ohio River at dawn.


NB over the Vanport Bridge.


The Ohio River in its morning fog.


SB over the bridge to original signs on the Exit 12 ramp.


One more button copy sign NB, and then I exited to avoid the toll. PA 60 gets the neat little "TOLL" in the shield, and PA 18 is the free route that moves fairly well, at least around sunrise on Labor Day weekend. Maybe that's not such a good basis for comparison.


Way up to New Castle, SB just before US 422 joins the bypass. PA 60 isn't well signed on the duplex, even though it was there first. Sampson St. is Business US 422 and was originally 422 itself. I wonder if there were ever exit numbers there, because the lone "E" is conspicuous.


Now PA 60 isn't signed at all on the duplex, because it's been replaced by I-376. In an ugly manner, at that.
