US 711

US 711 has very little history to its designation.  The routing it took was current PA 147 from Northumberland to PA 405, then turned onto Susquehanna Trail to Muncy, then the it followed several current routes:  PA 405 from Muncy to Hughesville, US 220 from Hughesville to Greens Landing, and PA 199 to the New York state line.  

In 1927, the highway was under construction between Sonestown and Prospect Avenue in Laporte and the surface from Ringdale to New Albany was also unimproved.  The following year the Sonestown to Prospect Avenue section was completed and the Ringdale to New Albany section upgraded.  However, it was also in 1928 when the route was decommissioned.
