|History:||Signed in 1946 and in 1948, the
southern terminus was moved from Banksville Road to its current location.
In 1982, a northern disconnected section was signed from US 19 at the northern end of the West End Bridge to Wexford. The designation followed Western Avenue, West Ohio Street, circled Allegheny Center on the Commons, East Ohio Street, East Street, and McKnight Road.
In 1984, the alignment was changed with northbound traffic using Western Avenue, Allegheny Avenue, North Shore Drive, General Robinson Street, Anderson Street, River Avenue, and Voeghtly Street. Southbound traffic was moved to Reedsdale Street and Beaver Avenue. In 1989, the designation was moved onto I-279 to form a complete Truck US 19 from Mount Lebanon to Wexford after the Parkway North was completed.
Construction began in 1997 on the interchange at the southern portal of the Liberty Tunnel which was completed on November 20, 1999.
