History: Signed originally in 1928 from PA 191 near Analomink to PA 191/PA 507 in Newfoundland on Creek Road, Sugar Hill Road, and Panther Road.  In 1932, the route was paved and in 1936 the northern terminus was moved from Canadensis to Newfoundland replacing PA 390.  It was decommissioned in 1964 and replaced with PA 447.

In 2006, the designation was revived to provide a loop for traffic from I-90 to I-79 and use the 12th Street corridor as an east-west alternative to the congested Bayfront Parkway.

History: Signed in 1928.  In 1946, Industrial Highway opened and with that the designation extended from PA 420 to PA 191 at Essington Avenue.

The designation was moved from Penrose Avenue, Moyamensing Avenue, and Broad Street to Essington Avenue and Passyunk Avenue in 1952.  The eastern terminus was moved from Spring Garden Street to City Hall in 1954.  A median was installed in 1958 from Eddystone to Philadelphia.

The eastern terminus moved to I-76 in 1987.  Also that year, a median was installed on 26th Street.

In 2003, the eastern terminus was moved onto 26th Street to end at I-76, instead of continuing to I-76 on Moyamensing Avenue.

On October 2, 2006, the designation was moved from Industrial Highway and Penrose Avenue in front of the Philadelphia International Airport and onto Bartram Avenue.  The reason for the shift was due to expansion of the airport.

Rehabilitation of the George C. Platt Bridge in southwest Philadelphia began in May 2011.  The $42.8 million project consists of repairing the structural steel, replacing expansion joins, repairing concrete piers, rehabilitating and resurfacing the bridge and approaches, replacing guide rail and damaged pedestrian railings, and painting the structural steel.  Project website:  http://www.plattbridge.com.
