I-68(E-W)/US 40(E-W)/US 219(N-S) Triplex

US 219 meets I-68/US 40 at Exit 22, a diamond interchange.

Another view of the eastern split interchange along US 219 south. Here US 219 exits onto I-68/US 40 west, and the triplex begins.

Westbound reassurance shields. US 219 is better signed in this triplex than US 220 is in its run with I-68/US 40. I-68/US 40/US 219 passes one interchange (for MD 495, Grantsville) before reaching the western split.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/8/03

In the middle of the I-68/US 40/US 219 triplex, one state route interchanges. MD 495 leads north to Grantsville and Alternate US 40 (the pre-freeway US 40/US 219 duplex).

 


Dan Moraseski 8/31/02

Eight miles to the west, both US 40 and US 219 leave the freeway. Triplexes usually have one route split off, leaving a duplex, which later splits. I-68/US 40/US 219 is one of the rare triplexes were two routes split at the same interchange.

 


Dan Moraseski 8/31/02

US 40 exits first at the cloverleaf interchange western split. US 40 goes back to the old alignment that I-68 bypasses and then heads northwest into Pennsylvania.

 


Dan Moraseski 8/31/02

US 219 splits to the south toward Oakland and West Virginia.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/8/03

At the western split, US 40 east enters the interchange from the north and US 219 south comes out on the south side.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/8/03

After the I-68 west exit is the I-68/US 40/US 219 east exit.

 


Timothy Reichard 3/8/03

In the other direction, US 219 north exits first.

After US 219 north exits, US 40 west takes over this road, locally known as Keysers Ridge - Oakland Road.

Now we take another look at the triplex heading east on I-68.

 


Dan Moraseski 9/02/02

US 219 joins from the south.

Then US 40 west exits. US 40 east enters next, following the freeway all the way to its end at I-70 and then join I-70 twice beyond that.
