U.S. 22 Pennsylvania Guides

The western extent of U.S. 22 follows a freeway from the state line east to U.S. 30 near Imperial and Interstate 376 at Robinson township. Although generally unmarked, U.S. 22/30 overlap with I-376 across Pittsburgh. U.S. 30 turns south toward Turtle Creek while U.S. 22 remains with I-376 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76) at Monroeville.

Continuing east from Allegheny County, U.S. 22 is a four lane highway to Ebensburg. U.S. 119 overlaps with the route for 13 miles on this section. East of Ebensburg, U.S. 22 upgrades to a freeway to Interstate 99 at Duncansville.

Traversing the Appalachian Mountains, U.S. 22 heads northeast from Holidaysburg to Water Street and southeast to Huntingdon and U.S. 522 at Mount Union. U.S. 22/522 overlap northeast to a freeway bypass of Lewistown, where U.S. 322 ties in from the north.

U.S. 522 branches northeast to Middleburg and Selinsgrove while U.S. 22/322 continue along a freeway southeast from Lewistown to U.S. 11/15 near Duncannon, and from the Susquehanna River south into Harrisburg. U.S. 22 loops into the capital city before paralleling I-81 east to Paxtonia and Jonestown.

U.S. 22 converges with Interstate 78 near Hamlin and overlaps with the route east to the Lehigh Valley Thruway. U.S. 22 follows the Lehigh Valley Thruway across the north side of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.
