U.S. 220 travels 248 miles north through Pennsylvania from the Maryland state line north of Cumberland to Waverly, New York just beyond I-86/NY 17. The bulk of U.S. 220 follows the Appalachian Thruway / Bud Shuster Highway. The designation coincides with U.S. 220 north through Bedford County, where U.S. 220 follows a limited access bypass of Bedford and combines with Interstate 99 north.

Interstate 99 overlays U.S. 220 north from U.S. 220 Business in Bedford township to I-80 and PA 26 along the Spring and Marion township line in Centre County. U.S. 220 Business follows the pre-freeway alignment of U.S. 220 north from Bedford to Exit 3 near Cessna. A second branch of U.S. 220 Business lines former U.S. 220 from Exit 15 near Sproul in Blair County to PA 550 and Bald Eagle Valley Road (SR 4027) in the village of Bald Eagle. Eagle Valley Road extends north along old U.S. 220 to the borough of Port Matilda, where U.S. 220 Alternate takes over northeast to Unionville, Milesburg and I-80/PA 150 at Exit 158.

U.S. 220 overlaps with I-80 east from Exit 161 with I-99/PA 26 to Exit 178 in Clinton County. U.S. 220 loops northward along the Susquehanna Beltway to Mill Hall and the city of Lock Haven. Crossing into Lycoming County at Jersey Shore, the Susquehanna Beltway continues east to Piatt township, where it downgrades into an at-grade arterial. The limited access portion of the beltway resumes east of Linden to I-180/U.S. 15 in the city of Williamsport.

Interstate 180 was designated along U.S. 220 from U.S. 15 in Williamsport to Mountoursville and Muncy township near Pennsdale in 1983. The two routes overlap for 13.5 miles. Beyond the Susquehanna River valley, U.S. 220 turns north from PA 405 at Hughesville to Laporte in Sullivan County and Towanda in Bradford County. The northern 4.8 miles of U.S. 220 in Pennsylvania bypasses Athens, Sayre and South Waverly.
