U.S. 224 extends 10.1 miles east from Poland, Ohio into Pennsylvania, from Mahoning township to the city of New Castle. The rural highway crosses the Mahoning River east from Edinburg to Parkstown in Union township. Continuing east along State Street, U.S. 224 meets I-376/U.S. 422 en route to Oakwood. U.S. 224 overlaps with U.S 422 Business from Sampson Street on Falls Street 0.6 miles to PA 18 (Jefferson Street) at Downtown New Castle.
With the relocation of U.S. 422 onto the freeway bypass around New Castle in 1975, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) requested approval from the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO) for an easterly extension of U.S. 224 over the former route of U.S. 422 to Shenango township. AASHO deferred on the request on November 15, 1975.
