Why was PA 100 truncated anyway? Iíve always found that to be confusing since it no longer connects to the one in Delaware.

My understanding was to keep trucks off Creek Road because of it's design (narrow, some sharp curves, an old weight restricted bridge).

I thought I read where West Chester wanted to keep trucks out of the borough.
But the Creek Road reason is possible too and very applicable.

I wouldn't read too much into it.  They have to call it something for the article, and the general public isn't going to know what "SR 2023" even is much less where it is.

The problem is that it's not SR 2023 or "100 Spur" anymore; it's just PA 100, the southernmost segment of the mainline route. They may have just wanted to distinguish it from the non-freeway portion of 100 north of US 30, but chose to use an outdated term.
