Home » Guides » Pennsylvania » U.S. 19

U.S. 19 parallels Interstate 79 throughout most of its 195 mile course in Pennsylvania. The US Highway enters the Keystone State just west of I-79 at Mount Morris. The north end is located in the city of Erie at U.S. 20 (26th Street) south of Downtown.

U.S. 19 overlaps with U.S. 40 two miles west from Laboratory into the city of Washington. The route crosses I-70/79 at a diverging diamond interchange (DDI) northeast from Washington. Staying east of I-79, U.S. 19 continues to Upper St. Clair , Mount Lebanon and the city of Pittsburgh.

U.S. 19 Truck branches east from U.S. 19 at Dormont along Liberty Avenue to PA 51 on Saw Mill Run Boulevard in Pittsburgh. The two converge by the west portal of the Fort Pitt Tunnel. U.S. 19 Truck joins I-376/U.S. 22-30 northeast toward Downtown and the North Shore while U.S. 19 heads northwest to West End Village and Manchester. U.S. 19 Truck returns to U.S. 19 north of West View in McClandless township.

Advancing north to Cranberry, U.S. 19 shifts to the west of Interstate 79, meeting the Cranberry Connector to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76). U.S. 19 (Perry Highway) generally serves local traffic northward to Zelienople and Mercer. Within Crawford County, U.S. 19 combines with U.S. 6/322 east across I-79 into the city of Meadville. U.S. 322 turns southeast toward Franklin while U.S. 6/19 remain overlapped north to Cambridge Springs and U.S. 6N in Erie County.
