Interstate 176 spurs 11.7 miles north from the Pennsylvania Turnpike/I-76 at Morgantown to U.S. 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway) at Cumru Township near the city of Reading. The rural freeway winds through mountainous areas from the borough of New Morgan to Robeson Township and the unincorporated communities of Beckersville and Green Hills.
Interstate 176 Guides
The Morgantown Expressway was completed in 1963 between PA 10/23 (Main Street) and U.S. 422. A Breezewood style connection linked I-176 with the Pennsylvania Turnpike at the Morgantown Interchange with PA 10 (Morgantown Road). Providing a direct link between I-176 and I-76, the Morgantown Connector opened in November 1996. The previous south end of the Morgantown Expressway was redesignated SR 2089 (Morgantown Extension), but still signed as part of the Interstate 176 mainline.
