U.S. Roads Portal

In the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, state highways are maintained by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Each is assigned a four-digit State Route (SR) number in the present Location Referencing System. Traffic Routes are signed Interstate Highways, U.S. Routes and PA Routes, and are prefixed with one to three zeros to give a four-digit number. PA Routes are also called Pennsylvania Traffic Routes, and formerly State Highway Routes.[1] Four-digit State Routes are unsigned, except on small white reference markers at intersections, and are only unique within each county. They are assigned as follows: Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ...

  • 0001-0999: Traffic Routes
  • 1001-4999: Quadrant Routes, assigned by rough quadrant in the county, going clockwise from northeast (1) to northwest (4)
  • 6001-6999: Relocated Traffic Routes (including alternate lanes such as local lanes or HOV lanes), assigned a number equal to the old number plus 6000
  • 7001-7999: turned back, abandoned, or null routes

Bannered routes are not assigned State Route numbers corresponding to their signed numbers, but are instead marked along other routes, mostly Quadrant Routes. A local lane or collector lane is a one-way roadway, usually on a freeway, that lies outside the main lanes (usually called express lanes) and provides access to most or all interchanges. ...

Concurrencies are assigned a number equal to the smaller of the concurrent routes, or the highest type (Quadrant Route → PA Route → U.S. Route → Interstate).[2] A concurrency, overlap or coincidence on a road network occurs where a single physical road carries two or more different highway, motorway, or other road numbers. ...


Occasionally, a Signed Route number does not match the Traffic Route, usually in the case of an extension or relocation. A different number can also be used to avoid conflicts between different types - for instance, signed PA Route 380 is actually State Route 400, renumbered ca. 1973 when Interstate 81E was renumbered Interstate 380. Interstate 380 (abbreviated I-380) is a spur highway that connects Interstate 80 with Interstate 81 and Interstate 84. ... Interstate 380 is a spur highway that connects Interstate 80 with Interstate 81 and Interstate 84. ...

History

In 1911, when the Sproul Road Bill was passed, a large number of Legislative Routes (LR) were assigned. These were the primary internal numbering until the present Location Referencing System was adopted in 1987.


Route numbers from 1 to 12 were first assigned in 1925 to several of the national auto trails: The system of National Auto Trails was an informal network of marked routes that existed in the United States and Canada in the early part of the 20th century. ...

  • PA Route 11: National Pike
  • PA Route 12: Baltimore Pike

Soon more numbers were assigned, including three-digit numbers for branches, like PA Route 532 from PA Route 32. The United States Numbered Highways were assigned in late 1926, and in 1928 State Routes concurrent with U.S. Routes were removed, while those that conflicted with U.S. Routes were assigned new numbers. The establishment of the Interstate Highway System in 1959 resulted in a small renumbering in 1961.   U.S. Route 30 is a major transcontinental route of the United States Numbered Highways. ...
