2009 Official Road Map

Updates made to the 2009 official state highway map.

This past weekend I stopped at the welcome center on Interstate 70 at the Maryland state line in Warfordsburg. In doing so, I picked up a copy of the 2009 official road map. Here are the changes since the 2007 editions:

Berks County/Chester County
PA 82 removed between Elverson and Birdsboro

PA 82 shown truncated on the 2009 official road map.

Blair County/Centre County/State College Inset
Interstate 99 completed from Bald Eagle to State College in addition to being signed from there to Interstate 80

Interstate 99 is completed between Bald Eagle and State College and signed from there to Interstate 80 on the 2009 official road map.

Fayette County
PA Turnpike 43 completed between Exit 15 and Exit 22 and shown under construction between Exit 22 and PA 88

PA Turnpike 43 open between Uniontown and Brownsville, and under construction around the latter.

Lehigh County/Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Inset
US 222/Trexlertown Bypass completed from PA 100 to Interstate 78

US 222/Trexlertown Bypass completed between PA 100 and Interstate 78.

Tioga County
US 15 finished from PA 287 to New York and PA 287 extended further along old US 15 to Lawrenceville

US 15 completed in Tioga County on the 2009 official road map.

New Castle Inset
US 224 extended further than US 422/PA 60 eastward on State Street and Falls Street

US 224 extended in Lawrence County on the 2009 official road map.

In conclusion, those are all of the changes to the 2009 official road map. It has the same dimensions as the previous year’s; however, this year’s cover is of an Amish buggy driving on one of the newly designated Civil War Trails. You can view the map at PennDOT’s GIS page.

If the Departments of Transportation and Tourism would have waited, they could have given a shout out to our three professional sports teams that won championships in the past year. The North Carolina Department of Transportation did that for the Carolina Hurricanes on the cover of their 2007 map.
