History: The only Interstate business route that originates from Interstate 83 for its entire length, and the only two-digit one located within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Construction on the section from Interstate 83 to Country Club Road began in 1958 and finished one year later.

The original route had it traveling George Street for its entire southbound path and northbound, it turns at Jackson Street, turns north onto Duke Street, and then west on North Street to get back to George Street.  The designation was moved completely to George Street in 2001 when it was made two-way.

In May 2003, PennDOT began rehabilitating the section from Interstate 83 at Exit 15 to Country Club Road.  Not only widening and realignment of the ramps at I-83 with construction of a ramp from southbound Business Loop I-83 to northbound I-83, but also resurfacing the highway was part of the project.  The project concluded on December 6, 2006 at a final cost of $58 million.
