Usually the public resists their property being taken for anything related to road construction, except for Steve and Bonnie Wenger, owners of Wen-Crest Farm in Lebanon County.  They donated land to PennDOT to eliminate a dangerous curve on a roadway that had seen terrible accidents.  "Having the landowner on board makes it easier," said Lebanon County transportation coordinator Jon Fitzkee. "We're seeing where we can make some safety improvements."  The project began on April 2, 2010 and was completed in two weeks.

History: Signed in 1928 and that same year, the route was under construction from the West Hempfield Township line to Columbia and completed the following year.

In 1930, the route was paved from PA 241 to Royalton and Ebenezer to Oberlin.  In 1932, the route was paved from Marietta to Bainbridge, Middletown to Highland Street, and from Oberlin to Harrisburg.  In 1935, the northern terminus was moved from 19th Street to its current location.

Construction for an interchange with I-283 and a new alignment for Oberlin Road began in 1968.  It concluded in 1970, and due to the new expressway severing Highland Street, the designation was removed from it between Oberlin Road and Eisenhower Boulevard.

The route travels past perhaps the most famous or infamous island in North America:  Three Mile Island.  During the emergency in 1979, the Pennsylvania State Police shut down the highway in front of the plant from March 28 to April 9.

During the later half of September 2009, crews hauled twin 510-ton generators through Lancaster County en route to their new home at Three Mile Island.  The convoy began traversing PA 441 on September 24 and only moved approximately three miles a day until September 30 when it arrived at the power plant.  Another convoy, this time hauling a used 250-ton generator from the plant, started its trip on April 30, 2010 and stopped that night at the US 30 interchange.  It resumed the trip in the morning of May 2, crawling from that point to PA 462 in Columbia.

In order to mitigate truck traffic through Columbia, PennDOT began construction of a bypass in July 2014.  The $11.8 million highway opened a little after 11 AM on December 17, 2015, and thus the designation was removed from Locus Street and Third Street.

Due to rehabilitation of the bridge over the Amtrak, Norfolk Southern, and Middletown & Hummelstown railroad lines on Ann Street in Middletown which began on March 16, 2020, the decision was made to reroute PA 441 onto and replace Truck PA 441 in its entirety.  When the project finished at the end of May 2020, PA 441 was removed from Union Street between Ann Street and Main Street and placed on its current alignment between those two points.

On March 16, 2020, Ann Street between Harrisburg Pike and Airport Drive was closed to rehabilitate the bridge over the Amtrak, Norfolk Southern, and Middletown & Hummelstown railroad lines.  The $531,403 contract that was awarded to Clearwater Construction, Inc. of Mercer consisted of installing approach slabs for the structure over the railroad lines, replacing the damaged parapet, cleaning bridge joints, repairing the concrete deck, scarifying the bridge deck and placing a 3/8-inch epoxy overlay, updating the traffic signal at PA 230, replacing the existing structure-mounted fencing with standard anti-climb fencing, drainage improvements, curb cut work required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, sidewalk repairs, and new guiderail, signs, and pavement markings.  Once the work was finished at the end of May 2020, the decision was made to reroute PA 441 onto and replace Truck PA 441 in its entirety.
